Well hello to you all! I hope you are staying safe and healthy as the world grapples with Covid19. New Zealand is presently in complete lockdown so being able to participate in this months Creating Kindness blog hop is a very welcome distraction to everything going on. We are blessed to be joined this month by guest designer Liz Yuille as we explore coloured pencils!!
Many of you will know that colouring is my first love. All too often though, I tend to go overboard and show off. Today I kept it very simple with this single layer card and let the colouring be the star of the show.
I love a good sunset, so set about recreating one with Stampin' Up!'s Watercolour Pencils in a spotlight. I didn't add any water to the pencils, but left them natural. I first stamped my images in Memento Black ink and then used a large Circle Die as a template for my night sky, gently drawing around it with a pencil before colouring in.
It's a very simple card and it took me all my time not to add anything more to it. I do like how it turned out though! Click on the button below to visit our next designer, Sara Levin of the Artful Inker!
