Scrapbook Boutique October Colour Challenge

Posted by on October 10, 2010 in Challenges, Flowers, Prismacolor pencils, Stamping | 2 comments

Time for another challenge at The Scrapbook Boutique Blog. The colours to use on this challenge were pink, brown and white. Such a lovely combination of colours. My first instinct was to go quite pastel, but the I decided to go the opposite and do bold colours.

For this card I stamped the flower onto Kraft card, heat embossed and then coloured in with prismacolor pencils, blending the colours together with a blending pencil. I am loving the vivid colours of the prismas on Kraft at the moment.

My inspiration came from this beautiful card by Debby over at Lime Doodle….mine didn’t turn out quite as elegant but you can see where my inspiration came from.

Supplies:

Stamps: Hero Arts Blossoms stamp (4 images)
Ink: Versamark watermark ink, Versacolor Ink (Opera pink) – for scalloped pink card under ribbon
Card: Regal Craft Card (white square single fold), Kraft card, White cardstock
Other Supplies: American Crafts black embossing powder, Prismacolor pencils (2 shades of pink), Derwent blending pencil, Kaisercraft pearls, Brown ribbon, Fiskars scallop punch, Zots adhesive dots, Wendy Irving “Thanks” rub on,Foam dimensionals

I used over 30 small white pearls for this card….so I hope you like my pearly design.

Thanks for stopping by.
