Tutorial Monday


Hi All!! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Mine was AWESOME not only did I finally get to finish the prisma color tutorial I have been promising you guys but I also met Jen del Muro from iheart2stamp!! I had a blast spending Friday with Jen and her ADORABLE baby Ellie. We went to the Children's Museum here in Houston and let the kiddos play. I was sorta embarrassed because Jen's DD is the sweetest and most well-behaved little girl ever and then we have my DS which is full of energy and going through the terrible two's. Let's just say he kept wanting to eat her snacks (even though he had his own food) and stole her ball in the play area. Luckily Jen was a teacher and had some great tips for me. (Thanks Jen)

So now to the tutorial. I made a step by step guide on how I like to color with my prisma colors. There are many ways t
o use them and this is just my version. In this tutorial I will only use my prisma colors and blending stumps. If you don't have prisma colors and blending stumps Kim from MFT has an awesome deal she calls her Favorite 48. Make sure to check it out. I will also have another tutorial using the gamsol soon. Here we go..

Step one: I stamped the lion image from MFT "Its A Jungle Out There" onto white card stock. I then colored in the whole image with a light yellow pencil.
Step two: I then picked two shades of a mustard yellow color. One being lighter than the other. I started by coloring in the body and head of the lion with the lighter shade. I then blended that in with the paper stump.

Step three: I then took the darker shade and highlighted the edges of the head and body. I then blended that together as well. When blending with the stump I like to use a circular motion. Also if I feel its not dark enough I repeat
step three until I get the desired look.



Step four: Now that the body is done I start on the lion mane. Again I pick two shades of brown one being lighter than the other. I color in the whole mane with the lighter shade and blend with the paper stump.
Step five: I follow by outlining with the darker brown around the edges. I blend that with the stump as well.

Step six: Now that the lion is finished I like to add a neutral shade around the outline of the whole lion or image to make it pop on the white card stock. For this image I used two shades of bluish gray. I start with the lighter version and then accent with the darker and blend everything together.



Step seven: Use the finished image to make a fabulous card!!

Edited to Add: I forgot to include the card recipe. Here goes...
Stamps: My Favorite Things Its A Jungle Out There
Card stock: Georgia Pacific card stock (found in Wal-Mart) SU Olive, Rust, Chocolate, River Rock, Basic Gray Mellow PP
Accesories: SU ribbon, cord, brads, prisma colors
Technique: Paper piercing


If you have any other questions please leave a comment and I will try to answer back. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial. Hugs Ana

Great card! I didn't realize I could blend with just the stump! That's awesome! I always use the gamsol but when I'm out and about, I can pull out my pencils and get to colouring while my daughter is at karate! Much easier! Thanks for the tutorial!

Mercy said...

ana...awesome card and tutorial, but i have a question. do you use dry blending stumps, or do you use them with gamsol or mineral spirits? thanks!

Ana said...

Hi Mercy! In this example I actually just use the dry stumps with no mineral spirits.

Thanks for the great tutorial Ana. I've never tried it without the Gamsol. Will have to put it on the To Do List.
