Thank You Card | No Lines Colouring

Hello! Hope you are ok and staying safe in the crazy weather which seems to be affecting so many people at the moment. Sharon Traynor is here to brighten the day with a beautiful Thank You card, made with our new verse and sentiment with our fabulous new grungy leaf stamp…

Hi! How are you doing? Great I hope.

Today I have some no-line colouring with some of the gorgeous brand new stamps by Visible Image. The latest release from Visible Image has some fabulous  stamps and stencils in it; there really is something for everyone.

I love that there is a larger size of this particular leaf in this new set because it is just the perfect size for a bit of colouring. So, I cut a piece of  Strathhmore Toned Grey paper to a mat size for a 15cm x 15cm card and added a square post-it note in the centre.

Then the leaf was stamped all around the paper using a light grey ink.

Any gaps were filled in with the flowerhead from one of the flower stamps in the same stamp set, and then I set about colouring it.

When colouring with polychromos pencils, the first thing I do is lay down some white in the areas that I want to have white in them, because it is impossible to add that later. Then I used a light green to softly colour where the leaf appeard inside the bubble, and I used 2 blue pencils to add a bit of shading to the bubbles to make them look 3d. (The arc that you can see in the photo must have been a reflection of something because it’s not there, or it moves, in other photos).

Then I moved on to the leaf veins, which were coloured in the darkest green, and added a little yellow on some of the leaf spots. I varied where theses spots appeared on most of the leaves for a bit of interest.

Next the rest of the leaf was coloured in. Four different shades of greens were used, the lightest at the top and the darkest at the bottom. I also blended some darker shades around the leaf veins,

and then the pink flower heads were tackled. I added blue for shading to separate the petals and just used pinks for the petals, again the lightest at the top by the white and the darkest at the bottom.

Carry on in this way all around the card. A lovely relaxing thing to do!

Now it just needs the sentiment heat embossing in the centre and mounting onto some gold card and a bit more grey paper. Put it all on a card blank and the card is finished.

inky flower | grunge | leaf | stamps

thank you verse | stamp | sentiment

Unicorn Stamp – Visible Image

Hello! We have some magical inspiration here on the blog today! Becca Cruger has a fabulous thank you card to share featuring our gorgeous unicorn stamp…

Magic was in the air of my craft studio – mostly because I broke out the mythical creatures (namely in the form of a glorious unicorn from the Visible Image Believe in Unicorns stamp set).

Just look at that majesticness!

 To make this shimmering creation, I started with a good base of black and grunged it up a bit using the Fibonacci background stamp. This stamp has quickly become one of my faves because it is so big and covers the whole background of a design perfectly.

Next, I created my own patterned panel using a sheet of white cardstock and the Universal stamp set, which has all these scribbly circles.

I used three colors of extra bright gelatos to add a pop of color to my creation.

I love working with Gelatos – there are so many ways to use them. If you haven’t tried them, they’re a sort of gel-like crayon that is water soluble. So you can use them as crayons, or mix them with water for unique watercolor effects.

For this technique, I applied a thick layer and let the colors overlap as I was scribbling, then I used my fingers to blend the colors together.

I put everything all together, and created a my unicorn focal circle, then added a sentiment from the Go To Words stamp set.

Products Used:

sentiment stamps - visible image unicorn stamp - visible image

stars and circles background stamps fibonacci - grid - background stamp

Thank you all for popping by!
