COLORED PENCIL CARDS

This week I have been playing with some new stamps I ordered from Hero Arts.  Since one of the challenges at Hero Arts this month is to use colored pencils, I wanted to use the Girl Holding Flowers wood mounted stamp.  And, I wanted to try to color her as a blond and then as a brunette.

For the first card, I pretty much copied the design from Deborah Nolan's recent post on Lily Pad Cards:


Here is my card:



Pretty much self explanatory - patterned paper for the background, a labels die for the sentiment, some of Hero Arts new twine (this is fabulous!!). 

Here is my brunette:



I used the Hero Arts Life of the Party Dots for the background by just stamping it on the cardstock with Versamark ink.  The flower is from Prima with a cute flower brad in the center.  The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles Message clear set. 

This little gal is so cute and a lot of fun to color!

Thanks for visiting.
