Featuring colouring other than watercolouring

Magenta Flowers

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share my Day 15 colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge using my 15th wood-mounted stamp! This one is by Magenta and I decided I would play along with the current Color Throwdown Challenge again as the dark pink/grey/black combo is so versatile!

Anyway, I coloured the images using my Twinkling H2Os and added a few Nuvo drops to the centre of the middle flower. To finish off my very CAS one-layer card, I added a Clearly Besotted sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!

Melle Papillion

Bonjour!

Today I’m playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge which has the most amazing sketch this week! As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to use a triangle as a focal point and thought I’d probably end up using a tree. But, as I was going through my wood-mounted stamps I unearthed the sweet ‘Melle Papillon’ stamp from Penny Black. I got it in 2013 and haven’t used it much at all.

Anyway, I coloured the image with my Prismacolor pencils and then cut it out using a triangular die. I then embossed a sentiment from my favourite things and added die cut butterflies from Memory Box and Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day

Hello again everyone!

I wanted to share another card celebrating today! This one is my Day 13 Colouring for the Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge and I used one of my older Magenta wood-mounted stamps, with one of my newest sentiment stamps (by Reverse Confetti).

I kept it simple so that the focus would be on that sweet cat and this was one of my quickest makes of the month so far!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hello everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day! As you know, I have been using my wood-mounted stamps throughout February and I hope to have created at least 28 cards using my wood-mounted stamps by the end of the month. But that doesn’t mean I’ve completely stopped playing with my new stamps! I bought this fabulous Avery Elle peacock just before Christmas. Perfect for today!

I coloured it using my Twinkling H2Os and also added a few die cut hearts which I’d coloured with the same paint.

I’m entering this in the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, plus the current Color Throwdown Challenge (black, dark pink and grey).

Thanks for stopping by!

Don’t Break it!

Hello everyone!

For Day 12 of the Daily Marker 30 Challenge, I used one of my oldest stamps (‘Don’t Break it!’ by Penny Black) plus my newest purchase (the Avery Elle background die). I toyed with adding a sentiment but decided to leave it at the moment, I may add one when I send it!

Purple and Green should never be seen…

Hello everyone!

Well I’m not sure about the title of my post… I recall hearing it as a saying from somewhere but I disagree with it – as would some British sporting institutions!!

Anyway, onto today’s card! I’m playing along with the current Case This Sketch challenge and used an old wood mounted stamp by a company called Inca Rubber Stamps. I’ve googled them, but it looks like they don’t exist any more.

I embossed the heart images and then coloured them to match the shades in my Basic Grey background paper.

To finish off the card I added a sentiment from Savvy Stamps.
