Colour Challenge 19

It's the start of a new week over on the Chocolate Baroque Challenge Blog and this is the colour inspiration for this month:

This is my take on the Challenge. I have used the Song Thrush stamp as the main image, a small flower from the Fresh Blooms for decoration in the background and the sentiment is from Mackintosh Sentiments.
The card is very simple, I stamped all of the images with Sepia Versafine and coloured with watercolour pens. The background is Broken China, Squeezed Lemonade and Tea Dye Distress ink and I have used some scrap green card as an extra layer.

Many thanks for stopping by

Flower Lady Part 2

Hi! Here is a very quick post just showing another version of the card I posted the other day. A selection of various stamps from my stash, along with a Crafters Workshop face template and then all coloured with Pan Pastel and Polychromos pencils.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon.

Flower Lady

Hi folks, can't believe we are two weeks into the new year and this is my first post, so I will whisper "Happy New Year" as it's way too late......My mojo has definitely gone walkies, but hopefully not too far as I would love to get cracking on some new projects. 

I created this card using Inkadinkadoo stamps and a Crafters Workshop stencil that I found in the Chocolate Baroque sale.
I started by inking through the face stencil onto white card, followed by stamping the "hair" with the Inkadinkadoo hibiscus flower stamp. I coloured with Polychromos pencils and added three die cut flowers to add a bit of dimension. The face and background were coloured with Pan Pastels and then I stamped the Inkadinkadoo bird around the background. I used a rubber to remove some of the Pan Pastel to make the lines around the face and of course finished with generous blobs of Crystal Stickles.

Many thanks for stopping by
