Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol | Kindred Stamps Peace & Love

Hey guys! It's release week at Kindred Stamps and we are starting it off with sharing projects using the Peace & Love set.  This set will be available April 26th, more information about that and where to preview the entire release below. 

Watch the video here.

For the van, I decided that I would use Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to color it. I used Canson Watercolor paper for this, I love a good paper that you can use for multiple different techniques. This would also be super easy to heat emboss and watercolor, but I went ahead and use Gina K. Amalgam ink to stamp it. Any of your favorite inks that are safe with Gamsol will work!

The background is actually a die from Papertrey Ink. You know?One of those items I used once but hung on to! I'm so glad I did because it worked well with the Peace & Love stamps. Since I was using a Papertrey Ink die I thought I would use the same for the cardstock. It was fun picking out a retro-ish color combination. To really add to this card though I did use some glow in the dark embossing powder for the sentiment and certain elements on the van. I think it's awesome that you can still read the sentiment in the light but once it is dark it starts to glow! See below for photo of this card in dim light.
