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
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!
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.
I’ve had so much fun colouring up various Picket Fence Studio (all links are aff. links) stamps lately. Here is one from the latest release, Mophead Hydrangea, where I opted for bold black lines on the stamp itself. The colouring is pretty simple, for a change, with various markers in pinks and lilac to make up the colours of the flowers.
To frame it all in I used bright pink card stock and then made the sentiment with the same paper. I used the Oversized Hello slimline die for this. I cut them out several times and then glued them together for dimension. And to finish it all off I added a few hearts from the Diva Hearts embellishment mix.
