Hello Beautiful!

Happy Fri-yay! Hope you have all had a great week! Are you ready for International Scrapbook Day :) I will be doing some make and takes during the National Scrapbook Weekend event here in Montréal!

Like many of you crafters, I have a lot of different coloring mediums so when the Faber Castell Polychromos became hugely popular I said to myself you don't need them you have your Prismacolor pencils... And I held strong for about two months, then I caved. Lol. I have to say, I am super happy that I did. The quality of those pencils is fantastic.


For my project today I decided to use the newer Even More Spring Flowers from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped my flowers on kraft card stock with Distress Antique Linen Ink to attempt some no-line coloring.  I so enjoyed this process, it was so relaxing. I started with a white highlight on all the blooms and leaves and then went in with three different shades of each color family.


I used the coordinating dies for the flowers. I then pulled out this Altenew Cover Plate die that I am simply in-love with.  It is called Watercolor Stripes and die cut that from black Lawn Fawn card stock. I placed the cover plate die cut on my card base and placed my flowers with foam tape.


I then die cut the Simon Says Stamp Hello Beautiful dies with Tonic gold card stock and placed both sentiments on my project. To finish off I added some Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins and black Tonic Nuvo Drops on the smaller flowers.

All products are listed below.

Thanks for taking the time!
