Who says your colored pencil bouquet on a card has to be the flowers drawn in the stamp? With a little creative inspiration, find a flower you like on the internet, follow its shapes and markings – and customize the stamp to your own liking!

Use a light color ink, like Kraft in this case, and you can cover that line with your pencils, and change the flowers themselves! You can use dye or pigment inks – just make sure pigment iinks dry before starting.

Find a picture of a favorite flower on the internet or take one in your garden, and see what you can do to match the number and shape of petals, the colors and markings – and then share your art proudly!

Polychromos colors used on my card…


The sentiment from this is part of 2 stamps in the set; I masked off the “dear” from “dear friend,” then added the “thank you” separately.

I added multiple paper layers and NO dimensional adhesive this time (seems I always do the dimension nowadays!) by adding a thin black layer and little thicker green one, and putting it all on a purple card base.
