The Flower Challenge Blog Reminder #63 Christmas


Time for the reminder post.

I have used this amazing  stamp from Simon Says and I never tire of this stamp. Always
colours up just so beautifully. I decided to go with white embossing on Kraft and pencil

I absolutely love pencil colouring and how it looks on Kraft cardstock but my hands don't.
I am slowly learning to do very light layers each time to allow for good blends and also by keeping the colouring light it is easier on my hands just a lot longer time wise.

I finished off with a 'May Your Christmas Sparkle' die cut and a few deep coloured

I love how this turned out.
Now off you go and check out what the others in
the Design Team have done to inspire you at

The coloring looks fabulous inside the white embossing, Aileen. It really sparkles on the kraft.

These flowers look so soft and velvety. Amazing pencil work, Aileen. Cratf paper is not at all that grateful to process with crayons to look as amazing as it does on your card.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and all your family, my dear Aileen.
