Garden Girl with Prismacolor Pencils

Hello and welcome to today's blog post and papercraft project. I wanted to try some simple colouring using Prismacolor Pencils. These pencils have a gorgeous silky feel and are my pencils of choice for really smooth blending. 
I kept it simple, and made sure to ground the image with some sketchy green so it doesn't appear to be floating on the page.
I used tuxedo memento black ink for all the stamping, and made sure to include a greeting inside the card as well as the sweet butterfly image.
I love doing a single layer card once in a while, and keeping it simple.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed today's project. Vicki x

Watercolored Striped Backgrounds:

 Hello, and thanks for visiting my blog today. I just love using white embossing powder on watercolour paper, then wetting the paper and doing simple blending with an aqua painter.
It's pretty much fool proof, and the results always have a painterly feel to them, as no two are the same.
By adding a paper doily, some washi tape and twine with a lil' punched out heart you can create a sweet baby card.
 Inside the card I used the Moon Baby stamp set and direct marker-to-stamp technique, mirroring the colour scheme of the outside.

The balloon is from the Balloon Celebration stamp set, and I used a versa mark pen to draw in the string line.

The background paper picks up the pinks, and it is mounted on a pink pirouette card base.
