Colouring Black Card

Hi Everybody,

When I added this card to a  blog post  I said I didn't know if it was really my cup of tea. Though I did enjoy colouring it.

I was absolutely amazed at how many of you liked it and wrote to ask me for a video.  So I was happy to oblige and it will be "Live" on YouTube today. It was a real crowd pleaser !!

You can pop over to my channel  Christina 1716   and it will be there.  Thank you for your encouragement and I  hope you enjoy it

Please become a subscriber while you are there and then you will be alerted whenever I add a new video ... which I have done weekly so far.

The video takes you step by step on how I did it and so you can colour along with me

I tell you which pencils I have used and the black cardstock is from Papermill Direct   The gold embossing powder is from Wow  and it melts so easy with the heat tool

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Hi Christina
    Thankyou for the video on this card, it makes things so much easier to follow. I like what you have done with the white pencil and I will certainly give it a go, Might even by the stamp and die set if I can find them
