SSS Wednesday Challenge: Sparkle and Shine

Hello crafty friends, I am back with you this week to share a Mother’s Day card I’ve created using newly released SSS Fluttering By products: Center Cut Flowers, Script Mom, Flickering Butterflies, Woodgrain Block, and Messages For Everyday.
Here is what I came up with:

I started by stamping the center floral from the Center Cut Flowers background stamp on watercolour paper using Barely Beige dye ink because of no-line colouring. I coloured the stamped image with Faber-Castell polychromos pencils. In my flowers, I coloured the half of each petal & leaf image with pencils, and then brushed them using (lightly) oiled blending stump – I used Zest-it Pencil Blend but you can use baby oil for blending oil pencils!
I have 120 polychromos pencils but you don’t need to buy too many all at once. 12 basic colour set, it’s good enough for you to try!
After colouring, I die cut the Woodgrain Block from white card stock.

I mounted the woodgrain panel on top-folded white card base using double-sided tape first, and then added coloured flower image, sentiment die cut, tiny butterflies on the card front using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Script Mom dies & Messages For Everyday stamp set.
To finish it off, I added these yummy fruity Nuvo Jewel Drops around the flowers!!

Flora & Fauna: Live Life Wildflowers

Hello crafty friends!
Today I have another floral card to share with you using so gorgeous Flora & Fauna Live Life Wildflowers stamp set. I love their stylish flowers so much!!

Here is what I came up with:
I started by stamping flowers & leaves from the Live Life Wildflowers set on watercolour paper panel using Altenew Sand Dunes dye ink. I then coloured all stamped images with polychromos colored pencils – just wanted to have rough texture from those colored pencils. I roughly coloured the background with Pumice Stone Distress ink and water brush.
Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment on the bottom right corner of the panel using VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink.
I stamped butterflies on a separate watercolour paper in Onyx Black pigment ink, fussy cut them out, and then put onto the panel using foam tape.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
