Fab Friday 150 – Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers
Welcome back to the Fab Friday challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog! This week we have a color challenge. I decided to pull out a set I got with a Simon Says Stamp card kit, Sketched Flowers, and to color it for The 30-Day Coloring Challenge using these colors.
It’s been a while since i have done any no-line coloring, and I had bought the new InkOn3 Fadeout pad a while back so I wanted to try it out. I also thought I’d go with kraft card stock, with these autumnal colors, and use Prismacolor Pencils. I showed the initial result on Instagram.
I didn’t leave it just like this though. It needed some color in the background to help it have a presence on the paper, and I deepened some of the shading. Lookie:
GOJUS! I popped it up on the Peacock card stock that came in the kit.
I used the French Gray Prismacolor pencils to create the shadows under the flowers…they are the perfect match for Neenah Desert Storm card stock. I also added some small speckles with some of the different colors I had used in the coloring of the flowers to help bring some sparkle to the image.
I stamped the greeting in Ranger Archival Sepia ink. I also added a few Pretty Pink Posh Rose Gold sequins to lift everything to the next level.
Sketched Flowers is a really beautiful set, and I’ve seen so many beautiful cards created with it!
