Spring Bouquet

When I saw the new Spring Bouquet stamp set from Avery Elle, I couldn’t wait to colour the beautiful flowers. One of my favourite ways to colour images at the moment is to use a mix of alcohol markers and coloured pencils, for a no line colouring look. I began by stamping the large bouquet… Continue reading Spring Bouquet

Copics with Coloured Pencils

I was reminded the other day of a colouring technique I used for a card ages ago. It’s no-line colouring with a mix of copics and colouring pencils. I was inspired to try the technique again, this time with the Pretty Pink Posh Hummingbird Thanks and Pretty Petunias stamp sets. I stamped the images on… Continue reading Copics with Coloured Pencils

Petunias and Sentiment Circle

My card today features the large flower and leaves image from the Pretty Petunias stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh. This image works well on it's own as a focal point on a card. I used copics to colour the image, then die cut it with the coordinating dies. For the background, I die cut… Continue reading Petunias and Sentiment Circle

Christmas, Handmade Cards

Little Agenda Merry Christmas

I made a card recently featuring the Mama Elephant Grid Window and the Little Agenda cats and dogs (link here). I thought the design would work really well for Christmas cards too. Instead of cats and dogs, I added some Little Agenda Santas and Reindeers. The backgrounds are all distress oxide blends. The merry die… Continue reading Little Agenda Merry Christmas
