Hello! It's a lovely fall day today in Jemseg, New Brunswick. A little windy but sunny and mild. Sure beats the grey sky and rain we had on the weekend. Well, today I have a card to share that showcases a rarely used colouring method, for me at least. Now, you all know how much I love my Spectrum Noir markers but this time I decided to break out my neglected Prismacolor pencils. I recently purchased a bunch of fantastic stamps from STAMPlorations that I've been playing around with. Shery, who designs these stamps, has come up with some lovely new Christmas ones that I just adore. For this card I used the poinsettia from the Holiday Sketches: Christmas Flower set. As the name suggests, it has a wonderful sketched feel to it. Take a look at what I've made...
So, I made a paper mask of the poinsettia and then stamped it all around the edge of the kraft card base. I used soft suede ink (SU!) so as not to be too harsh looking. Then I coloured my flowers using white, pink and green pencil crayons. I love how this looks on the kraft paper. Then I stamped my sentiment (from same set) in the same brown ink. I love that this is all one layer as well.
I'm going to link up to these two challenges:
STAMPlorations - for their "Anything Goes" challenge which requires the use of their own stamps.
Virginia's View Challenge - make a CAS card.
Well, I hope you have enjoyed you visit. I sure appreciate you stopping by. Have a lovely day!
