Yup. Pencils. Pencils on kraft. Until about a week ago I hadn’t coloured up with pencils before, not even had a try I was unhappy with. I simply hadn’t tried. I’d been told it was difficult, so I’ve just put it up and stuck with my Copics even if I got my pencils as a gift well over three years ago! I finally tried them and they are so much fun! I love the effect I get from using them on kraft paper as well. My Prismacolor pencils are definitely going to be used regularly!
There is a new Lili of the Valley release today and it is full of cute little boy stamps! I absolutely love them and the one I will show you first is definitely one of my favourites! As soon as I saw the image I knew how I wanted to the card. Isn’t it great when that happens?
There is a new digital release at Whimsy Stamps because apparently it’s April already. How that happened, I’m not entirely sure… I’ve coloured Jillian and her little bird friend up with Copics as usual. She is a fun one to colour up, even if the hair tends to take a bit of time.
I’ve kept the card simple by using paper from Maja Design and Reprint as well as Make it Crafty chipboard and Rayher butterflies.
Baby cards are fun to make and I think I’ve made more the past year than all the previous years I’ve been card making added up. I wonder why, haha! I do like making them in the non-traditional blue and pinks as well, and this one in turquoise and purple is amongst my favourites already. The adorable stamp is by Stamping Bella, the background paper is by Lawn Fawn and the chipboard was from Make It Crafty.
Leap year day today. 29th February, so of course I had to post something as it’ll be a while until I have that opportunity again! I’ve used the Frog Prince from the Wee Stamps collection over at Whimsy Stamps for this card. I’ve stuck with my CAS card size and made it a semi-layered card.
