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.

Bring out the Sunshine

Hey everyone! I have been doing tons of colouring lately. But not a lot that I can show… yet!

So for today, I pulled out the Bring Out The Sunshine set from My Favorite Things, and coloured her up on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I haven’t coloured up anything on kraft cardstock in a long time.

I recently purchased a set of 20 Caran D’ache Luminance coloured pencils, and 4 additional colours to that. So I mixed them with my Polychromos to colour up this little lady.

My verdict on the Luminance pencils after their first use… I will be buying more. Lol I am an art supply junkie!

Wallpaper Art

Hey everyone! This one took 3 days to complete, but I am in love with the way it came out.

I have wanted this set, Wallpaper Art from Altenew, since it first came out. I finally got my hands on it. I had this vision of white flowers on kraft paper. Which meant coloured pencils.

It turned out exactly as I imagined, and during the 30 day colouring challenge it fit in perfect. Took a few days to complete, with a little colouring a day.

Chillin’ Frenchies

Hey everyone! I am still plugging along on the 30 day colouring challenge! I pulled out one of the newer sets from Simon Says Stamp called Chillin’ Frenchies!

I have not played with my pencil’s in a long time. Also, seeing as my son’s baseball season is coming to an end I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make a fun card for the coach from all the boys on the team. I don’t normally gush about my boy, or people in our lives. But my goodness did he get a great coach this year, he went above and beyond doing extra practices with the boys, and helping them become little men.

So I coloured this one up on some kraft coloured cardstock. Super happy with this clean and simple card. Now I need to colour up the rest of the dogs in this set!

Curvy Girl Eats Cake

Hey everyone! Today I have a guest post for Stamping Bella! I am so thrilled to be guest designing for them, it really is a dream. I have loved the stamps this company releases for years!

For my first card, I pulled out Curvy Girl Eats Cake and my coloured pencils. I haven’t shown my pencils much love lately, but this was the perfect opportunity.

I stamped her out with a light colour ink, to give the no lines colouring look, once everything was finished. Then I went in and coloured it up with my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

Once I got her all coloured up, I decided I wanted the sentiment to look really sketchy as well. So I stamped it with the same light coloured ink, then traced over it with my black pencils to give it the sketchy look.

Thanks so much for stopping by
