Watercolor pencils + pencil highlights!


I have a lovely card to share today. I love using my stamps in a different way then they are intended to and I love extending them and come up with fun ideas to use them on cards.

For today's card, I am using Impression Obsession Patterned Circle Cling Stamp and using it as the center of a flower. I will be coloring using Faber Castell Watercolor Pencils and then adding highlights using Staedtler Luna Color Pencils which really lifts up the project.

You can watch the process of how I created this card HERE

I am submitting this card for the Simon Says: Fabulous Floral Challenge and STAMPlorations August Challenge where the theme is to use Markers/Pencils.

For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil.
