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'



  1. just wunnerful Di.... was given some pencils (132 a huge set) very spoilt so need to follow your steps...really love colours, hugs, Shaz.xx

  2. Oh this is so sweet, Di--love it! I have that stamp & haven't pulled it out in ages. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. What a gorgeous image and I love your pencil work! xx

  4. 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.

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

  6. Oooh PRETTY! Me likey!

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  7. So pretty Di, bringing a hope of spring.

  8. So pretty and gorgeous Di, I love the simple design.

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. This is so pretty Di. I really must get my pencils out and I love Sally's tip about the Versamark pen x

  14. Ooooo! Very pwetty Miss.

  15. 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.

  16. What a sweet stamp and colored so beautifully! Simple and perfect!
