Technique – colouring

Featuring colouring other than watercolouring

Yellow rose

Hi everyone!

There’s another cute sketch over at the Case This Sketch challenge this week and I decided to use my Altenew Bamboo Rose set for my take.

I coloured the image using my Twinkling H2Os and added it to a die cut – which I had embossed using one of my favourite Taylored Expressions embossing folders.

To finish the card, I added a small sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

I’m also entering this card into the current Color Throwdown challenge – green, yellow, red and aqua.

Thanks for stopping by!

What part of Meow don’t you get?

Hi everyone!

I spent today sorting out all my old wood-mounted rubber stamps! I had such fun rediscovering them! I actually used one of them on today’s card – the sentiment is an older stamp from The Cat’s Pajamas! I have a feeling you’ll be seeing more of my older stamps over the next few weeks!

Anyway, I coloured a Tim Holtz Crazy Cat using my Twinkling H2Os and used my favourite stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop to anchor the image.

I’m entering this card in the Timeout Challenge (CASE with your own twist) and the Color Throwdown challenge (dark pink, pale pink, green and white).

Sparkly Hydrangea

Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since I played with my Winnie & Walter stamps and as my hydrangea is just starting to bloom, I chose the gorgeous hydrangea stamp from their Addie’s Garden set. I embossed the flower and leaves with silver embossing powder from Hero Arts and then coloured them using my Twinkling H20’s. I fussy cut the images and then stuck them to my bas card using differing depths of foam tape.

I added an older sentiment from Hero Arts, some stickles and a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins to finish it off.

I’m entering this card into the current challenges hosted by  A Blog Named Hero (Florals/Winnie & Walter) and The Flower Challenge (Embossing Heat/Dry).

Let your dreams take flight

So today’s card started as an entry for the new Color Throwdown challenge, but once I had stamped and coloured the gorgeous Penny Black image with lighter colours in the palette, I just couldn’t add the darker pink! I liked the soft colours too much!

So instead, I added some diamond stickles, smooshed on some Tumbled Glass distress ink and added a Penny Black sentiment and called it a day.

As I used my Twinkling H2O watercolour paints and did some gentle ink smooshing, I’m entering this into the current CAS Watercolour challenge as the theme is ‘butterfly’.

Happy Wedding!

Hi Everyone!

The theme for the current Retro Rubber challenge is ‘wedding’ and I used an older Stampendous stamp for my entry. I’ve had this stamp for around 8 years – it’s such a great image. I’m so glad this challenge is leading me to rediscover my wooden block stamps. I love them!

Anyway, I also used a newer sentiment from Altenew. I coloured the image using my Prisma coloured pencils – and added some stickles for a bit of subtle bling!

I’m also entering this into the Less is More challenge where the theme is one layer/coloured card base.

Thanks for looking!

Orange Gerbera

Happy Friyay!

I was fortunate to win a Uniko set of stamps through the Less is More challenge blog last month and I chose the Gerbera set. They’re my first Uniko stamps and I was so surprised by the size of the set when it arrived – so much bigger than I was expecting! The images are great for colouring and I chose one for my entry for this week’s Freshly Made sketches challenge. I embossed the image and then coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os. I added some paper from My Mind’s Eye and a sentiment from Hero Arts plus a few enamel dots to finish it off!

Thanks for looking!
