Lemon Lush – pencil on kraftPosted: March 26, 2021 Filed under: A2 layers, Additional A2 layers, Coloured pencil, floral notes, lemon lush, Pink Fresh studio, Waffle Flower | Tags: brutus monroe embossing powder, Faber-Castell Polychromos Colour Pencil, Pink Fresh studio, Waffle Flower dies 5 Comments
I have a second card featuring the pretty ‘lemon lush’ stamp from Pinkfresh Studio. Last time I used peerless watercolours for a bold, bright look. Today’s white on kraft combo is softer and subtler.
I stamped the large 6″ x 6″ stamp on kraft cardstock in Brutus Monroe alabaster ink then embossed in alabaster powder. I used polychromos pencils to colour all the elements. The whole lemons needed a few shades of yellow and orange but the rest of the design was completed with pairs of inks, two greens, two pinks or two yellows with sometimes the addition of white to soften or brighten.
The sentiment is from the Pinkfresh set ‘floral notes’ embossed in white then cut and framed with the help of my ever-useful Waffle Flower A2 layer dies.
Wishing you a bright and happy day!
Love It! Great stamp, your palettes illustrate perfectly how varying color sets the mood of the piece. The options are limitless and certainly stretch your stamps. Thank you, Heather, for yet another path to take.
Fabulous Heather. I love the look of the pencils on craft and such an interesting combination of images with the lemon slices and the pretty flowers and such a wonderful combination of colours and a lovely sentiment too. x
So pretty, great shading!
LOVE this card, Heather! Your colouring on kraft is fabulous. xx
I had long forgotten how well pencil works on paper that is not white. You did a magnificent job coloring this. Those colors just pop! It looks particularly beautiful since you embossed in white. This is such a cheerful card!
