Blooms in Boots | Hand Colored Thinking of You Card

As I'm writing this post, I'm looking out my craft room window at some dreary skies, and a patchy coating of snow that has fallen over the last week.  Typically at this point in the year in Boise, I'm starting to watch for flower buds popping through the soil, and the grass is in that weird stage where you can see it starting to change from the wintery yellow/brown to a light green.   Any snow that falls melts, nearly immediately.  We've had a mild winter here this year, but it was still winter.  And I'm dreaming of spring flowers and warm drizzly rain.  Which leads me into today's card...

This springtime card, features the gorgeous Fun Stampers Journey  Blooms in Boots Stamp set (available exclusively as a Bloom Benefit through the end of March). Colored with the Journey Color Burst color pencils - find out how to get a step by step video tutorial on how to color this image - as a FREE purchase bonus - in the blog post

I wanted some of those springtime colors in my life, so I stamped out the Blooms in Boots ATS (a Bloom Benefit available ONLY until the end of March!) .  I masked off the first image, and stamped it again, to create a "pair" of boots.  Then I colored in the image.  I fussy cut out the boots, and put foam squares on the back.  I stamped the Flannel Life background stamp in Cool Pool onto a card front, then die cut a circle from Whip Cream to add a layer of separation between the patterned background and the colorful boots.  I stamped, and heat embossed, the sentiment onto a strip of River Stone Card Stock.  Then I layered all of my pieces together, adding a River Stone mat to the back of the card front.

Now, here's where the fun part of this post comes in!  I have something special planned for you!  From now, through the end of March, when you purchase a set of the Journey Color Burst pencils from my shop, not only can you choose the Blooms in Boots stamp as your FREE Bloom Benefit gift, AND earn the Coach Collective edition shown below - YOU ALSO  will receive access to a private video showing you exactly how I colored the image above.  No blending solution, or special coloring paper, required.  Every color of pencil I use will be shown, I'll walk you through masking the image off, and give you my tips and tricks for coloring images with depth.  These pencils are so fun, and color beautifully.  I think you'll be happy to have them in your arsenal!

Video will be sent to all purchases including Color Burst pencils, made in my shop from February 28th - March 31st, regardless of additional items chosen.  Video link will be sent out beginning March 5th. In the video, I will also be using Whip Cream Card Stock, River Stone Ink, Clear Block I, and the Blooms in Boots Stamp.  See the product list at the end of this post for the item numbers for each item.
