Our newest release of Stamp and Sequins is now live and available for purchase in the store!
Here is what I have created for you
I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
Right, I'm skipping ahead a little bit here, let's go back to the beginning. I have used the Kindness Medley stamp set which I stamped with VersaMark on smooth black card stock and heat embossed it with Ranger Inks Gold Tinsel which is nice and sparkly. Then I jumped in the deep end with my pencils and started colouring. As the card stock is black I started with white pencil all over the petals to make sure the other colours popped. I went for teal blue colours, which I thought was a nice contrast to the gold and black. Plus I love blue. In pretty much every shade. I coloured all the petals and the leaves, and this took me quite a while but boy was it worth it. I love this look!
As I didn't want to take away too much focus from the flowers themselves, I decided to keep the sentiment super-simple and just stamp 'Kindness' and heat emboss that in smooth gold embossing powder on a small banner. This along with a sparky gold stitched rectangle die to frame the card, was all I added. I thought that was very restrained of me, I'm usually an 'let's add all the sequins and layers and a bit of this and that' kind of gal.
Well, with that, I'm all done!
