Simon Says Stamp | Where Flowers Bloom – So Does Hope. Polychromos Coloring

Hello friends! For the past few days I have been longing for Spring. It’s very sunny and warm in Phoenix, but unbearably dry. With Spring comes rain and new life for plants so I can’t wait for it to begin raining and I’m very excited to see the desert bloom again. While it’s still going to be a few weeks before the Spring and rains come I turned to my stamps and paper and translated my longing for Spring onto a card.

CARD DETAILS

I started working on this card by picking out the right shade of cardstock. First I tried using Simon Says Stamp Fog as it is one of my favorites, but found that there wasn’t much contrast between the white coloring and background, so I opted to go with a slightly darker color – Smoke Gray.

I stamped a pattern using just one image from the Floral Bliss stamp set in Fog ink color onto my Smoke paper and started coloring each image with Polychromos pencils. I love to use my Polychromos for coloring on dark cardstock colors as this is where these pencils really come to life and pop.

I went with 5 pencils today: May Green #170, Chromium Green Opaque #174, Pink Madder Lake #129, Fuchsia #123 and White #101.

Once my colorign was done (see step by step below) I heat embossed Where Flowers Bloom – So Does Hope in white embossing powder onto same Smoke cardstock and foam mounted onto the card (I adhered my colored panel onto an A2 side folding white card base).

    1. How absolutely stunning Yana! Love your colouring on coloured backgrounds!

    1. Yana, this card is so beautiful. I especially like it, because I see the branches as pussywillow, which are so important to us Ukrainians at Easter. Simply stunning. I wish I was as talented as you are.

      I absolutely adore this card design, it is simple but classy. The blossom stamp is also a very clear stamp so when coloured in coloured pencil is it very sharp against the grey. The white and the two pinks create this, huge thanks Yana for demonstrating this to us crafters. :O)
