This is one of the cards I designed for our monthly Challenge class. I have been dying to to use this stamp set and practice with the new water color pencils. I absolutely love the water color pencils. They are so easy to use and they blend like a dream. I started by stamping the lady on shimmery white CS with staz-on black ink. I colored her using the water color pencils and blended using both the aqua brush and the blender pen. I used the aqua brush on the dress and the blender pen on the rest. I like the aqua brush because I can create better highlight and shadows that I can with the blender pen. I then stamped the ground using the sand from the lighthouse stamp set and Sahara sand ink. I used a post-it note to create the moon and sponged the sky with soft sky and night of navy.
This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year. This is so fun. The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch. I made the grass using the new fringe scissors. The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.
These are a couple of Sympathy cards I made this week for 2 different friends. I used the same set Pleasant Poppies and water colored one with Primrose Petals and the other with Raspberry ripple. Love the new In-colors from Stampin Up! I used 2 different framelits from the Apothecary Accents set. On the bottom of the top card I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits (love them) and the other one I used one of the Adorning Accents Edgelits. The ribbon is just some of the Taffeta Ribbon in very vanilla which I sponged with the matching in-colors to get the color I wanted. The sentiment is done using a stamp from the Petite Pairs Stamp set and punched out with the new Ticket Duo Punch. The very vanilla layer is embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Folder. Well thats it for me tonight. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think.
I'm back with some more coloring. This is another card from my Challenge class last month. I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water. I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil. I love how this turned out.
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.
