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.

Thanks for re-posting these conglomerate videos. There’s always something it seems I’ve missed. I love pansies – their coloring is so different and vibrant. TFS
Oh wow Sandy, just gorgeous!!
Gorgeous card Sandy, there is so much depth in to your flowers that makes them so real.
Thank you so much for sharing and have a wonderful day.
Each flower is unique and full of depth, popping with rich color! The reflection is awesome. I really need to work on that. Thank you for always inspiring us!!
Gorgeous pencil colored creation! I love how you transformed the front flower into a pansy and beautiful glass vase!
