Pencil flowers on kraft

Here is the very first colouring I did using pencils. It made its way onto a card thanks to Elin who suggested this layout, inspired by a card made by Colorfulcluttereddesk on IG two years earlier, and mostly remote-controlled the making of this card. That is a very fun way to make a card, by the way, and I suggest you give it a try!

It was during one of the 30 day colouring challenges that I decided it was finally time to dig out my Prismacolor pencils and give them a try. I didn’t even have a pencil sharpener… but thankfully my other half hurried to the shop once I was done with the big flower as it was no way I was going to finish the rest of the card without sharpening a single pencil!

The gorgeous flower is a stamp by Power Poppy. The polaroid die is by MFT Stamps, the big letters are chipboard by Make it Crafty and the sentiment strip is made using Mathia Design stamps. The text means “hi, we’ll miss you”.

If anybody has a particular interest in knowing which pencils I’ve used, then I have written that down somewhere, so just pop me a message.

Mmmm Strawberries!

Our theme this month, at Copic Marker Norge, is something edible. Initially I was going to use a stamp with donuts, but I got a Power Poppy gift certificate for my birthday a few days ago and I simply had to colour up this stamp! Don’t the strawberries look yummy?! I cannot wait for summer and being able to pick some in mum’s garden! Strawberries are delicious!

Copics used: R22, R24, R27, R59, R89, G21, G24, G40, N1, N3, Y11, Y13, Y38, YG01, YG17, YG23, YG97

Spring break

Another floral card, completely different to the one I put up a few days ago. For this one I’ve coloured up a Power Poppy stamp. I’m quite pleased with how the colouring turned out on this one. Sometimes the card doesn’t need a lot of stuff added, at least I think so. So I just added a sentiment stamp by Mathia Design and a few enamel dots by Altenew.

Copics used: (green) YG03, G24, G94, G99, (yellow/orange) YR20, YR21, YR23, E97, E08, E19, (pink) RV63, RV66, RV69, (purple) V22, V25, V28, BV29, (sky) B60, B63, (ground) N3, N5, N7

Flowers for you

A non-Christmas card today. Opted for various pink hues and letting the coloured image (stamp by Power Poppy) take all the focus on this layered card. I used a little bit of lace and ribbon, made my own sentiment and stuck with one patterned paper and a light grey card base.

I coloured this up for the colouring challenge in June, and I don’t remember where I wrote down the colours… The vase should be various N, though…

Colouring video: Poinsettias and Pomegranates

I have a new colouring video for you today where I have used the Power Poppy stamp Poinsettia and Pomegranates. This is available in both clear stamp and digital stamp on their website. Coincidentally it’s actually on a sale right now when I’m posting this up. The focus here is primarily on colouring using red as well as how to get dimension on the layers by adding shadows.

There is no audio for this video, but I am really hoping to get that added on the next one again! Anyway, here is the video:

This is how the card I made with this image looks:
