Sending hugs & happy thoughts!
Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday afternoon! I was another warm day here in NW Ohio. It feels more like spring rather than winter. The fog is rolling in, so I'm glad I'm home safe and sound in my house. I just finished up a card that I started a couple days ago using one of my new stamps I received for Christmas. An Altenew stamp set...Beautiful Day! I'm entering this card over at NBUS Challenge. And, here is my card...
For my card, I started with a kraft card base and embossed the flowers. I colored the flowers using my SU colored pencils. I used a white pencil for the base and colored with pink and purple. I went over the flower with white to soften and blend the colors. White dots were added to the center of the flowers and a white acrylic paint wash splattered for the final touch. I love to color and really enjoyed this technique!
Well, my husband is watching the Packers v. Falcons football game, so I'll take a break and watch some with him. We are rooting for the Packers today. But, as always, may the best team win! Thank you so much for dropping by! Take care and have a blessed week!

Oh my... You are really good at this technique... Beautiful card Maria!ReplyDelete
That is so pretty Maria! I love the pencils on kraft paper, and your coloring is beautiful!!ReplyDelete
Maria, this card is a showstopper, such beautiful blooms! I am so sad about how that Packer game went. The Falcons were amazing, I wish is was the Packers that were amazing:(ReplyDelete
Oh, Maria! What beautiful flowers you created with the embossing and colored pencils! They are so pretty on the kraft. Well, sorry about the Packers...ReplyDelete
This is a gorgeous stamp set. And I love your colouring; love the splatters and little pearls you added too!ReplyDelete
Hi Sweetie! I have been missing in action, and haven't made any cards all year. I just piddle around when I have time. I figured I would visit my friends for some of that great inspiration! I love the kraft and your pretty purple coloring!!!!!BIG HUGS!ReplyDelete
Beautiful choice of colors for your flowers, Maria! We rooted for the Packers, too, but have to be happy that a team who hasn't been to the Super Bowl in so many years gets a chance. Wish we could all go to a Super Bowl party together!ReplyDelete
You achieved such vibrant colors on kraft, unbelievable! And the white dots and splatters are fun!ReplyDelete
Beautiful coloring!!! Your flowers are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
Stunning card, Maria as I sit with my foot up on a stool...we are watching my daughters dog, a HUGE golden lab/retriever mix (I am talking great dane size!) and the he stepped on my foot in his excitement...I saw stars!! that set is one of my favorites, although every Altenew set is amazing, I just love the depth you can get with their flowers! Love the color you chose! Hope you are having a great week! Heart Hugs, ColleenReplyDelete
I really love this - the effect of pencils on kraft looks great but I think the white dogs and splatters really make the card.ReplyDelete
Wow, Maria, how gorgeous! Those flowers look amazing! I always love stamped images on kraft! Can't believe all the depth and texture you got on each petal!! <3ReplyDelete
Oh my... Maria, this is exquisite! Technology was not my friend this week, but you sure know how to welcome me back! This is beautiful! The embossed flowers are stunning... every petal is spectacular. You brought them to life so brilliantly! The sentiment is so sweet. Lovely work, my sweet friend!ReplyDelete
