I spent a large chunk of today working on a future class, not the projects (the most fun part), but the photography, editing, promotional blurb, etc. While doing that I got inspired to combine the technique from the class next week with the theme from the class next month and this quick card was the result. I haven’t done a one layer card in a while and I rarely work with kraft cardstock so it was fun to change gear a little. I stamped butterflies from the Darkroom Door set, ‘Butterflies‘ in versafine onyx black and toffee inks then coloured the toffee one with coloured pencils.
The white paint over the card front is part random splatter of copic opaque white pigment and part sigma white gel pen dots. The sentiment is from the DD set, Happy Birthday. I am always keen to participate in Kathy Racoosin’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge but never manage it on all thirty days. Today’s colouring did not take long, which is what she suggests, and it was fun to squeeze it in.
Beautiful! I love the pencils on kraft.
Great idea. Just enough coloring to be pretty and to make it a manageable project.
Pretty coloring. Great idea for my “You’re one of a kind” stamp. Thank you, Heather, you’re one of a kind!
Gorgeous card! Love the colouring on the big butterfly. xxx
This is so pretty Heather and I love the look of the black butterflies on the kraft card, and just the one coloured beautifully with your pencils. I love the bit of white spattering too. x
