Thomas Kinkade Warm Windows Tutorial

Today Kristine Reynolds shows you another terrific way to use the Thomas Kinkade Stamps without having to color the entire image.  
 You can check out my last tutorial on stamping the Thomas Kinkade images in different colors HERE.

Today's tutorial will demonstrate how simply coloring the windows on the Thomas Kinkade images makes a huge difference!  I used Prisma Color Pencil for today's tutorial but you could use Copic, Spectrum, or any other coloring medium for the same look.
To begin, ink up your Stonehearth Hutch image (or any TK image) with a brayer and a juicy ink pad.
I used Adirondack Bottle dye ink by Ranger.

Lay the cardstock panel on the inked image and lightly rub across the back of the panel.

Lift the panel and allow to thoroughly dry.

I used a Lemon Yellow Prisma color pencil to color in all the lit windows.

I used an Orange pencil around the outer edges of the windows.

Then I added a little pit of Poppy Red pencil along the lower edges.

Finally, I used a cream pencil to blend and lighten the windows.
I used a couple of layers of green and white cardstock to focus attention on the image.
For the sentiment I stamped one of the images from Night Before Christmas on white cardstock with the same ink and cut it out and adhered to the card.

I hope you found this tutorial helpful.
