Alcohol pens bumbleberry papercrafts Cards Distress Oxides honey bee stamps Ink blending Jo Summers Neenah Solar White Polychromos Pencils prismacolor pencils Stamping stamps Sympathy Tonic Nuvo Drops

Well Hello Crafty Friends,

I have two cards for you today, using the beautiful large floral image from Honey Bee Stamps.

I am not usually fond of this kind of design, as i'm more an character artist. But I just kept looking, at this image and I wanted to challenge myself. By stepping out of my comfort zone.

So here we go 

Unfortunately I  had to make a sympathy card this month, when I read the sentiments to this stamp set this was perfect. Then after enjoying this challenge  so much, i went on to make an autumnal card for a Oct/ Nov Birthday.

Card One


Honey Bee Stamps Everything Wonderful

Neenah 80lb cardstock

Memento Ink (Tuxedo Black)

Alcohol Markers & Prismacolor or Polychromos pencils

Tumbled Glass Oxide and Blending Brush

Nuvo drops in Yellows and Orange

Card Blank in 6x6 inches (Card One)

also 5x7 inches (Card Two)


Firstly take a piece of neenah 80lb cardstock .

 Stamp out the large floral image, using alcohol friendly ink.

Colour your image, with your alcohol markers. add details and shading with your pencils.

Next I used a blending brush and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide, to go around the outside of the card blank.

I then stamped my sentiment and re stamped my image, using my Misti in versafine Onyx Black Ink.

Next I did exactly the same, only changing the colours, of  pencils.

I used a light blue pencils to go around the outside of the image.

Stamped my sentiment.

Lastly I added Nuvo Drops to finish of my card.

I must say, that I enjoyed this style of design so much I may just widen my horizons.

I will definitely look at more large floral's in future.

Happy Stamping
