Vintage Roses with Inktense Pencils

Hello my Crafty Friends,

I have been quite silent in the blogland but that is because my girls and I are accompanying my husband to his work trip. I made these DT assignments well ahead and now I'm jus sharing these. So another fortnight has gone and it is my turn to host Altenew blog today. I decided to use Vintage Roses and Flowers set for this post. And of course, I just couldn't keep my pencils in their drawers.. so here is my card:

Stamps and dies used: Vintage Roses and Flowers, Doodle Blooms and coordinating die
and Sentiments and Quotes.

and Sentiments and Quotes.

I had to admit that this card reminds me of Formula One - I so should have used different colours. If someone is having trouble using these layering stamp sets (as I did LOL), I share at the video how I managed to get then lined up and look like a flower. These aren't my first attempts, so if you are having hard time layering these, you may consider using this guide here - it helped me a lot!

Sketchy Rose with an Inktense Pencil

Good Afternoon everyone!

I am hosting Altenew blog today and I am featuring Sketchy Rose set. We had a discussion with my hubby the other day what is monochromatic and he suggested that it is purely something that can be made using only one pencil. Well, that really sounded a challenge for me all though I still believe a card can be monochromatic other ways too. So, I used Sketchy Rose and stamped it on coloured card stock and added shading with an Inktense pencil. I really had fun with this piece and I am planning on doing another with the same technique later on. I really really liked the end product, hopefully you do to. So here is my project for today:

I filmed while I coloured, if you wish to see it, you can watch it here or in HD in Youtube.
