Colored Pencils on Colored Cardstock for Simple Cards

Hello crafty people! I have a really cool technique to share with you today for my monthly video. I'm still new around here, so I'll introduce myself again. My name is Katelyn and I just joined SBC not too long ago. This is my second individual project for this lovely community. Today, I wanted to explore a technique that is new to me. I have had this background stamp for ages and I haven't utilized it as much as I should. So, I wanted to make something that would let this stamp shine.

I decided to use the preview of the wood stamp as inspiration for my color choices. I decided to use four colors overall. I used a light pink, a wine color, white, and a medium brown tone. These are similar colors that are featured on the stamp block. To color the flowers, I started with the darker wine color in the center and creases and then used the light pink to blend it out. I think that having the pink cardstock background helps cover up any of the poor blending I may have done.

Beach Smile Layout-Featuring Altenew

Hi crafters, sandy here with a layout and I am sad to say but this is the first one of the year for me. I have just not been layout motivated however..... I did find this sketch over on the Altenew blog and thought, why not?  So looking through my pictures, I found this one that I just knew I wanted to do a layout with.


I have to chuckle, this face is just too much!!! She was not happy with me when I called her to turn around for a picture.  We were headed over the dune to the beach to see the ocean and a lighthouse and Mama was holding up the show, hehe!!!


Here are some of the cards that I did previously with Altenew's Say Cheese stamp and die set.  This is one of my favorites.







Thanks for stopping by. Here is the link if you would like to play along! http://altenewblog.com/2017/03/10/march-2017-layout-sketch-challenge/
