Asela, you are a true "artiste"!! I do use pencils & markers together, but never tried it on colored cardstock. These ATC's look fabulous, I will add this to my ever growing list of things to try!!!

Okay, so I wouldn't have thought to trace around the paper before I used decorative edge scissors. Duh! Great tip! (And beautiful ATCs) Your stamps are great Asela. Congrats on their production!


these are just fabulous! What wonderful coloring work you did with your very own sketches! You talented lady!


Thank you for this wonderful tutorial. I will have to try that today. I don't have Prisma colors, and I want them really bad.

These are gorgeous - thanks heaps for the info on how to colour using both markers and prismas. I will certainly be giving your ideas a try when time allows.


That is a wonderful tutorial, thanks so much for posting it! It has never occurred to me to use markers and colored pencils together, let alone on colored cardstock - what a great idea!

Peggy Maier

I love the way you used markers AND colored pencils! Now why didn't I think of that?!! Really lovely!

These ATCs are just beautiful - lucky recipients of these treasures!! Thank you so much for showing them and for the great tutorial - wow I dont think I have ever used my markers on coloured card - oh how bad am I LOL!! I sure will be from now on! Cheers from Australia

A. Sanborn

Ooh-la-la Asela! Your ATC's are just gorgeous and your designs are incredible! In regards to the hair... AMEN!!! It's so hard to find someone that knows how to cut "thick" natural curly hair! *wink* When Sophie saw your blog photo, her comment was... Your friend has hair just like yours Mum! LOL...

Anne :)

Nancy Pohl

OHHHH, LOVE those ATCs, and just in time. I just joined a swap and was looking for some inspiration!!! Just found this site. Read about it in my Cornish Heritage Farms email.
Have fun in Florida. lived in Daytona Beach for 23 years.


What a great tutorial. I agree, combining pencils, markers, ink, etc make stamping so much fun. It makes me feel like a kid again when I get to play with my coloring mediums and stamped images LOL!


You are such a talented GENIUS!!!! The ATC'S are all STUNNING!!! TF the phenomenal tutorial!!! I can't wait until your stamps get here, I do know that they were shipped a few days ago, teehee...TFS.


Beautiful ATC's!! and a Great tutorial...have to try this..TFS


Fabulous job!!! And I feel your pain about the curly hair....try having it long and having people not get how MUCH product you need to control it. I always laugh when they think their little blop is gonna work.


Thanks Asela for a wonderful coloring tutorial! You are an amazing artist!!!
It's summer time down here. 80s and sunshine! :)

SOOOOO pretty! And why didn't I think of that???!!! You are amazing, thanks so much for this great tutorial!!! Have a fabulous weekend! :)

Lisa Trombitas

Beautiful! Beautiful stamps, lovely colored images and GREAT technique with the markers and pencils. Thanks for sharing. CHF says you're designing another set - can't wait to see. Your flowers arrived a few days ago and haven't had time to play yet, but I'm itching!


WOW! In a million years, I wouldn't have thought to combine my Prismas with markers. I love it that you figured out how to put those things together -- and that you shared the technique.

Leslie Miller

Wow, Asela! I didn't see this before, but a comment was left on my Coloring With Markers post that prompted me to come over to look for this. I love my Prismacolor pencils, but I've never thought to use them in combo with the markers before. What a great idea! I love the highlighted effect. I'll definitely try this!
