Hello everyone,

I have been struggling with making my projects as my mojo has left me... So to try and get myself motivated again, I always try to do something different. So for today I have a really simple card...

So here's how I made it. 

I put this stamp into my stamping tool and coloured it with watercolour makers, I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, but any watercolour markers or even crayons would work. I used a few shades of green for the leaves, a few shades of yellow and orange for the flower and grey for the rest. I then spritzed with water and printed. There were some spots that didn't stamp well so I repeated the proces.. Next I took the stamp out, cleaned it and just repeated the grey on the areas that had no stamping. 

I then used coloured pencils to add more colour. I inked up the edges and used a bottle top to stamp some circles. The sentiment was restamped with VersaFine Clair ink and cut out. I mounted it on grey card stock and adhered it to the card panel. I then adhered the panel to a white basic card. 

Simple but effective I think.

I only used one stamp for this card:
#274 - Fritillaria by Tracy Evans

  1. I don't think coloring is ever simple, but this is definitely with lots of interest! Well done, Friend

  2. I'm with you on the loss of mojo, Corrie; I love your frittaria, though, and think you've found it! Somehow my muse is elusive (no doubt running from Covid), so I hope you've inspired it to peek back into the studio.
