Garden Flowers Sketch Thank You card

My first bit of crafting for well over a week and, looking at the list of cards needed, this Thank You card was right at the top:
I used:

- 5" x 5" square white card blank

- the image was stamped using a favourite Hero Arts stamp called 'Garden Flowers Sketch' and coloured using Polychromos pencils, Sansodor blending solvent and Derwent paper stumps

- sentiment stamp is an Anita's one made by Docrafts, no name though - plus just a little bit of colouring on the flower

- layered onto a snippet of SU's 'Certainly Celery'

Looks pretty! Sure is the time of year for thank you cards too.

I like the look of the pencil crayons blended with the solvent...such a soft, pretty look.

Lovely - I think using the solvent helps immensely with the colours

Beautiful card, Di. Love the little flowers but your colouring method sounds incredibly complex and I have no idea what Sansador blending solvent is!!! However, the result is lovely. The greeting is fab too. Hugs, Elizabeth xx

Such a beautiful stamp which you have coloured perfectly! It reminds me that spring is not too distant, at least I hope it isn't xx

Really lovely card Di, I think I have this image somewhere.
Not made a card myself since well before Christmas, can't get into it, I have tried but just binned everything.

Absolutely gorgeous! What a simply beautiful card. I can see why you love that stamp. Did you know that a versamark pen blends as well as the sansador and paper stump? Handy for taking on holiday, lol!

I like it a lot! I like that it is not Christmasy or wintery but that it is bright and springy! I mean I know it's a lie and my toes will freeze off if I go outside but I can look at your card delude myself that it isn't so.
