Make a wish

Time for another card with pencil colouring! I actually coloured this one up as one of my first pencil colourings back in May last year and it’s taken until now for it to make its way onto a card. The stamp is from Purple Onion Designs and I use Prismacolor Premier pencils.

The card itself is simple. I’ve cut the panel a little narrow to fit a stripe of coloured cardstock down the side. I’ve drawn in a border around the edges of the coloured panel as well. The sentiment is a combination of a stamp from MFT Stamps and one of their dies which I’ve cut short so it only says “wish”. I had the perfect amount of light blue enamel dots from Altenew left, so they got to hang out around the sentiment as well.

Magnolia Blossoms

Did you see the video I put up in the middle of March? Well, you can find it here, if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m showing how I coloured up this stamp from My Favorite Things called Magnolia Blossoms. Today the card is ready. I’ve drawn in a black whimsical border and some random dots, gave it a narrow cut to have a white border on the side. Then I used black ink on a stamp by Avery Elle.

Colouring Video – Magnolia Blossoms

I have another pencil colouring video for you today. This time I’ve used a stamp by My Favorite Things called Magnolia Blossoms. The image has been stamped twice at slightly different angles using GinaK Designs’ Amalgam Ink and it has been coloured up using Prismacolor Premier Pencils.

There’s no audio this time either and the video itself has been sped up so that it is twice as fast as the real time colouring. Then you have an idea of how long it took to colour it. It takes longer to make the actual video than it takes to colour up the image, that’s for sure!

Pencils used: (brown) 947, 945, 943, 997, (green) 109, 1097, 1005, 989, (pink) 994, 929, 928, 1014, 938

Another pencil coloured flower

As you’ve noticed I am quite fond of colouring with pencils on kraft. I have yet to actually try to use them on anything else! This time I’ve coloured up a stamp from Power Poppy. The numbers were cut out using an MFT Stamps die and then coloured up with the same pencils so it would match the colour of the flower. I finished it off with the recipient’s name and a few enamel dots.

Rainbow books

I really wanted to make something today. It’s been a super busy week and I’ve hardly had time to sit down and spend time crafting or colouring, so now that it’s finally weekend I wanted to make sure to get some time in! And nothing. There was nothing I felt like making, apart from a vague feeling of wanting something with a rainbow on. After a while I remembered this pencil colouring I did a while back. The stamp is by Mama Elephant. I had some Lawn Fawn scrap paper laying about in lovely rainbow colours, so a piece of that, some white cardstock and the perfect Mama Elephant sentiment meant I got a card done after all!
