Thinking of You Card

Happy Monday, Everyone! Thanks for visiting my blog. I’ve created a Thinking of You card using the hydrangea stamp set from Ellen Hutson. What a gorgeous stamp! I had fun coloring it in with Prismacolor colored pencils.

Choosing the paper for this project was  a fun treasure hunt. I finally decided on this beautiful cardstock from MFT called Blue Breeze. I used the coordinating pigment ink for an almost no-line effect when i colored it in with my pencils.

After I finished coloring my hydrangea, I cut down the card so I could add more paper. (Yes, I’m paper crazy.) It’s a blue striped paper to make the dark blue sentiment and the dark negative spaces of the card pop!

Here’s the video showing how I created this card. Hope you enjoy it!

  1. This card is beautiful! I love how the stamping blended in and it does look hand-drawn! I agree the pattern paper really adds to the finished card. Do you have any coloring tips? I know the pencils blend well, but how do you decide which colors should go where when laying? Did you take inspiration from a photograph or were you just able to visualize how the flower looked?

  2. Thank you! I’m so glad you like my card! I did refer to a photo of a hydrangea for this card. I pulled out all my blue and violet colored pencils and colored a practice flower to see which color combinations I like the best. I always like to put in my highlights first so I don’t cover them up too much, and then go in with my base colored pencil–the pencil I’ll use the most. I then use my darker pencils to put in the shadows and add depth. Thanks so much for watching!
