It’s the third Thursday of the month and that means Rachelle Anne Miller has just released her new stamps! This time I’ve chosen to colour up the Starry Night Bears image (aff. link.). I’ve printed it in the size that would fit a normal card base and then coloured up the entire thing. A simple premade sentiment from Simon Says Stamp is the only thing I added to it. I figured it looked best as it is!
I have opted for a no-line version in a bit of an unusual colour, at least for an orchid. Then again, orchids can be in pretty much any colour you want, right? Once I had almost all of it coloured up, I simply had to give the centre a lime green colour. I don’t know why, but that’s what felt right at the time and I really quite like it, actually.
Copics used: RV91, RV93, RV95, BV23, E70, E74, E77, N3, N5, N7, N9, YG01, YG13, YG67
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.
I’m still trying to get through all the images I coloured up for the two daily colouring challenges that ran nearly back to back this spring. The one I’ve used for today’s card is the first one I coloured up for those, back on 1st March. It’s a stamp by Gina K Designs. The stamp is massive, so I had to cut off a little to fit it onto my standard sized cards. I cut it slightly smaller on the edges so I could have a thin red border on each side. The sentiment says “we’re going to miss you” in Norwegian and is by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst). Three enamel dots, in black, and that’s my card done!
