Sending Hugs

Hi again,
     I have another card to share today and I'm really happy with the finished product.
I don't use my colored pencils often enough, so I pulled them out and got to work on this card for the, Make My Monday-Make It Krafty challenge. Colored Pencils and Kraft paper always work so well together, that's why I chose to use them for this challenge.
     This stamp from Simon Says is one I've had for a while, but this is the first time I've used it, I really love this stamp set. The sentiment is from the same set.  I stamped it using Altenew-permanent black ink on Kraft CS. Then using my Arteza colored pencils I colored the flowers and leaves. Then, with a Sharpie Fine tip marker I went over all the black lines to make the flowers stand out. I stamped the sentiment in the bottom left corner and the front was finished.
     As I said I don't use my colored pencils enough, so I'm not an expert, but I do love how it turned out.
     For the inside I just stamped one of the leaves, from the same set, in the bottom right corner and colored and outlined it. Other than the time it took to color this CAS card, it was quite simple and quick to create.

  3. Beautiful job of shading with your colored pencils! Would have liked a bit more "white space" or in your case, "kraft space" for the clean and simple look. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to Stamps and More! - clean and simple challenge.
