PFS Early Tulip Bouquet colouring video

I have made my first post for the Picket Fence Studio blog today and because of that I’ve made a new colouring video! In the video I am colouring up Early Tulip Bouquet (this and following links are affiliate links). To make the flowers really pop I’ve used kraft paper and my Prismacolor Pencils, as usual.

I have used the following Prismacolor Premier pencils:
Yellow: 914, 916, 1011, 1002
Orange: 1003, 118, 922
Pink: 928, 929, 1030, 937
Green: 989, 912, 109

Here is the finished card I made using said colouring. I’ve also used combined the Slim Line Oversized Hello word die with a plain text sentiment from the Animal Crackers You Deserve to be Spoilt set. The cut out the die five times and glued them together for dimension and used foam tape for the plain text sentiment. To finish it all off I used three sequins from the Vintage Bulbs sequin mix.

I hope you enjoyed the video and I wish you all a great week. Happy Monday!

PFS New Release

There is a new Picket Fence Studios (this and following links are all affiliate links) release out today and guess what?! I’ve been playing with stencils, inks and paper glaze. So yeah, this is going to be a long post. You might as well grab a cuppa before scrolling through.

First up I have a simple card where I started off by using masking tape to leave a stripe on the side. First I ink blended with various pink oxides to create a gradient effect, and then I used the Pathways 6×6 stencil together with the Paper Glaze Luxe Pink Magnolia. I applied it with one of the tools from the Mixed Media Spatulas tools package and I love the effect.

I coloured up one of the stamps from the Animal Crackers Caring Friends stamp set and because I had a cup of tea in a cup with blue flowers on at the time I simply add to add that to this cup as well. Before popping on the card with foam tape I used one of the bigger sentiments from the same set and added it towards the bottom of the card. A few pretty sequins from the Vintage Bulbs sequin mix finished off the look this time.

You can see how the glaze is raised off the card base and that it is quite glittery.

Here you can see the great sparkle and shine in the glaze. Isn’t it pretty? I love it and I don’t even normally like adding sparkles to my cards! You can also see how beautiful the sequins are!

For card number two I’ve played with the new blue glaze called Paper Glaze Velvet Sapphire Macaw and the new Slim Line Flower Burst stencil. Isn’t it such a pretty stencil? I decided to use a diagonal stripe of the glazed stencil for this card together with another big sentiment, from the Watercolor Roses set, and loads of butterflies from the Baby Butterflies Beauties set. The hearts are from the new Birthday Hearts embellishment jar.

Here you can see the stencil and colour up close.

Why stop at two cards, right? Of course I had to make one with my usual “mash up” as well. I’ve used both of the above stencils, Slim Line Flower Burst and Pathways 6×6, for this together with two different distress oxide colours. I used a different stamp from the Animal Crackers Caring Friends set and popped it up on foam tape over a hello die cut, from the Double Stitched Layering Rectangle Dies set, which is like six die cuts glued together for dimension. I coloured up a small paper strip to match the green chair and finished off with a smaller stamped sentiment from the same Animal Crackers Caring Friends set and some sequins from Chicks in the Grass embellishment jar.

Here is a close-up of this card as well!

PFS Flower Shop

Another fairly large stamp from the most recent Picket Fence Studios release is the Flower Shoppe stamp. I opted for a dark coloured shop to make the pink and yellow flowers pop. I opted for two different shades of brown for the wood work and the pots, and then the same greens throughout. It was a fun project to colour up, for sure!

The embossed sentiment is from the same stamp set, and, to make sure you won’t miss it, I put it on bright pink card stock. A few sequins from the Bunny Honey sequin mix finished off the look this time.
