This card started out as a way of trying out some gorgeous green and blue Faber-Castell pencils that my friend Trinh had sent me - thanks again Trinh:)
I had never used Faber-Castell pencils before and I have to say I love them. They blend so well and I love the triangular shape and grip dots which make for a very comfortable and firm hold. Lol even thought I'm not, I'm beginning to sound like an ad for Faber-Castell - I just like to say when I find a product that works really well.
To start with I stamped the Large Petal Background on kraft card, drew a frame around it with a fine tipped felt pen and then stamped the sentiments around the image as another frame. Then the colouring fun began. As with this card, I did all my colouring while watching World Cup matches the other evening. I didn't set out with any particular colour scheme in mind so just added in colours I already had to the greens and blue that Trinh had sent me. Then I added white gel pen to parts of the image. The black ink seemed to fade a little into the kraft card so I again used my fine tipped felt pen to go over most of the outlines and also the sentiment.
I'm submitting this card into Hero Arts One Layer Challenge and A Blog Named Hero Color It In Challenge.
