I went through my arsenal of stamps and came up with this perfect image from Technique Tuesday; Budding Poppies. For the stunning and bright background I used Dylusions Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange & Bubblegum. The Hello is also Technique Tuesday; Straight Talk - Hello.
Regarding a hint of using the ink sprays for excellent blending, I made the following chart [courtesy of Dyan];
Just follow the above steps and WALA - awesome background! I do have to say, the sprays [while messy] are so fun to play around with! I adore the vivid color they create.
For some reason, last week I was exposed to colored pencils - everywhere I turned; FB, online, a customer I ran into at the gym. Well, when fate speaks like that, I listen. Therefore, I pulled out my only-used-once Prisma Colored Pencils, went to You Tube, watched a few colored pencil videos, and went to work.
Using the same image as above, this is what I created;
I am happy with this. Yeah, there are a couple of tweaks that could be made, but overall it's okay. My problem is I have to be in the mood for coloring.... and the time it takes. I am an impatient stamper. That said, it might be a while before you see more colored pencil projects on my blog. :)
Hope you all had a crafty week end! See you tomorrow~
