How soothing is it to be sitting here colouring and listening to Ministry of Sound Chillout… life is perfect! And guess what, I actually should be making another card (for an order, no worries… it’ll happen). But how could I resist this weeks CAS-ual Fridays Challenge when they have combined with one of my other faves, the Clean & Simple FTL. I also wanted to join in the Coloring Color Trends Challenge from Embellish and here is what I came up with. I am usually the slowest card maker, but this one seemed to come together in no time at all, it may have helped that I have left it to the deadline and I am heading out with my parents today…. nothing like a little pressure to make it happen.
Supplies; Paper: White Hopsack Cardstock, Bazzill Kraft Carstock. Ink: Memento – Rich Cocoa, Rose Bud, VersaMagic – Cloud White. Stamps: There She Goes – Poppies. Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils: Van Dyck Brown, Raw Umber, Earth Green Yellowish, Light Green, Cadmium Yellow, Cream. Accessories: Fiskars Stamp Press, Foam Dimensionals.

Gorgeous, just gorgeous! I love the couring of the poppy & how you did the text on both the panel and the background!! 🙂
Love the text block you have on the white cardstock and then repeated on the kraft cardstock. Beautifully colored!
I’m with the other ladies too, the text is fantastic stamped across the layers and your colouring is super cool 🙂
Oh my…I love the text stamped all the way across! And, your coloring is just perfect.
