2021 Card Design Superstar Challenge

Hey all! Today I am sneaking in under the wire to play along with the MFT Stamps Colouring Virtuoiso Challenge.

I pulled out my Tweet Friends stamp set from MFT and Stacey Yacula.

Stamping it with my Cement Gray ink pad, and pulling out my coloured pencils and getting to work!

I have always loved the look of pencils on toned paper, kraft, gray, or black I love all of them with my coloured pencils. After slowly building up the layers to get the main image coloured up. I added a start white outline just to let the little bird pop off theback ground. Some gental scratchy colouring to give the feeling of a background really did finish this one off.

Thanks for stopping by

Balloon Besties

Hey friends! Today I am playing with a newer release stamp set from MFT Stamps called Balloon Besties! I really love all the balloon images they have been putting out!

I stamped out the little character on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock, and coloured it up with my copic markers!

Once the copics were finished I went in with my coloured pencils to add some details and textures to the image! I finally recorded one of these for you!

Sunny Vibes

Hey friends! Today I again was playing with my Kraft paper, Copics and Coloured Pencils. It has been my jam the last few days. They take me about 3 mornings of colouring before work!

So I masked out the little van and put the tree in behind it. After that stamping the sun to the right side of the paper. All using Ink on 3 No Lines ink. I really like it on the kraft paper for this look.

I do really love the white highlight I added between the images and the blue sky.

Magical Dragons

Hey friends! Today I pulled out the Magical Dragons set from MFT and my copics and coloured pencils on some kraft paper.

I stamped it out with come really light ink for the no lines look. Then added in the background and detail in the dragon with my coloured pencils. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep track of all the coloured I used, cuz it was just some late night colouring for 100% fun!

I added the cloud in the background with a stencil then added the colour after. A few small enamel dots with a small sentiment finished off this sweet little card!

C.C. Designs June New Release

Hey all! Welcome to the June release for C.C. Designs! We have a bunch of new super sweet images to share with you!

I am sharing my first project of a super clean and simple card using the New Snow Swissie! I love her ever so much.

I decided to colour her up using my coloured pencils, something I have not picked up in a very long time! I had so much fun playing with them. I die cut it out with the Scalloped Rectangle die to put her on the card front.

You Gnome Me

I have been playing with all sorts of things I have had in my collection for a long time, that have been neglected or not used at all!

So today I have my first card from my stash to share today! Today I pulled out the You Gnome Me set from MFT and kept it monocromatic with some blue pencils from my Luminance stash!

I really love the look on toned grey paper, I love seeing how much shade variation I can get while using the same pencils all the way thru.

The Greeting Farm – Miss Anya Coffee Break

Hey everyone! I have a fun card today. I have been getting myself out of my funk, and today’s card was nothing but fun! I feel am loving making cards again!

I stamped this girl from Miss Anya Coffee Break on a piece of toned grey paper. I decided to see what I could do with 6 pencils, one of them being black to retrace the stamped lines. It was a challenge and a great time to see all the different shades of brown I could get with the same 5 coloured pencils!

Pencils used:
Luminance – Sepia
Sepia 50%
Brown Ocher 10%

The Greeting Farm – October Preview Day 3

Hey all! Welcome back to day 3 of previews for The Greeting Farm! We are nearing the new release!

Today’s set is called The More the Merrier! It is full of the cutest little critters ever!

Let’s talk about this card! I had a fantastic time colouring up the little hedge hog and door! and for some reason while I had them all masked out I decided it was a door to no where? Notice the blue sky and green grounding. But, I was so happy with how it looked all put together that I did not want to change it and try and make it look like the inside or outside of a house. So I left it the way it was. I am really happy with how it turned out.

I have been doing so much painting with my watercolours lately, that it was so much fun to pull out my colored pencils and colour this one up!

The Greeting Farm – September Preview Day 1

Hey everyone! We are back for another set of previews for The Greeting Farm! This month’s release is amazing!!

I pulled out all my coloured pencils for this one. One thing I love about this medium is how friendly they all play together. Prismacolor, Polychromos and Luminance. I can mix them in endless ways to create tons of looks!

I think added a little bit of detail with a white Posca marker and added some stitching to finish it off. The sentiment comes from the Holiday Wishes stamp set.
