#682 – You Are Incredible

Hello! At times, I feel like bringing out a coloring medium.. and then I keep going with the same thing, until I suddenly realize that its all I’ve been using. Happened this time with my color pencils. I suddenly realized that it’s been some time since I took them out, and started some coloring with them. And then I just kept using them, and no other media for coloring.. and then it hit me that I wasn’t using anything else! It’s a cycle that never fails to repeat.. and I already know what’s on my list next – Zig colro brush pens.. yup, its been a while since I took them out! πŸ˜‰

Anyway, I digress. This is what I made using my color pencils.. Also, it had been some time since I took out these old favorites of mine – Altenew Persian Motifs stamp set. And it made just the most beautiful combination! πŸ™‚

On some scrap cardstock, I stamped the flowers in a light kraft ink, then colored them using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I then fussy cut them. On a card panel I stamped the a few more images using the same ink, and colored only a few ares with a light grey color. I also stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set, using a dark brown ink. I trimmed this layer, and foam mounted it on the card bas and also foam mounted the fussy cut flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by! πŸ™‚
