Penciled Daisy



Hi all!  I’ve been enjoying a wonderful summer break by spending my days colouring, reading, designing, and in-between these good times I’ve thrown in some housework, but only because the need arose!  I’d spend all my time at the computer or my craft desk if I could (Oh, and reading!) 🙂

I created a couple of cards a few days ago and amongst it tried to produce a video, but because it’s been sooo long since I’ve done a video, and because now I have a different camera to the one I use to use, it’s taken way longer than I would’ve liked and I’m heading back to work tomorrow so wanted to at least post my cards!

Today I’ve used the set Squared Posies and printed my image on to Fabriano Accademia paper.  This set was designed by me and originally produced as a clear stamp set which is now discontinued, but I’ve transformed the set to digital.


I used a background stamp on the textured white card stock and stamped in Antique Linen.  In both cards the sentiment is stamped in Walnut Stain and the two panels made from the same textured card stock using the stamp pads to colour them.


To this second card I added some 3mm Cocoa Sprinkles (still to be added to the shop!), and some natural twine.


Prismacolor Pencils are always wonderful to work with so I had a blast!  To blend I used paper stumps and Zest-It!

Have a great week everyone!

Smiles 🙂

    Beautiful cards. Love your colouring. i think I have that set and will be stamping out a few images ready to colour. I have been doing some water colouring of late but love using my prisma pencils with those blending stubs. TFS

    Two beautiful cards Andrea! Glad you had some time to be creative. I’m counting down to having all my inks etc. not too long now😊


  3. Beautiful cards.
    The first part of your post could have been written by me! I’d rather be doing almost anything except the housework 🙂 Back to work today too. I have managed to finish the eighth book in the Outlander series phew now I can’t wait for the next one! I am currently one book ahead for book club and am planning to stay that way – fingers crossed.


  4. Both cards are beautiful and of course your colouring is brilliant! Sounds like you have had a great Summer, it’s been great here too (except for work that keeps creeping in almost every day lol)
