So Many Techniques ...

There are so many ideas and techniques around that some inevitably get forgotten or at least make their way to the back of our minds.  I was reminded recently about stamping and white embossing onto kraft card, colouring images with pencils which is something I'd not done for a while.  I have two similar, but different, cards to share today using the same stamped image in two colourways and with a selection of paper and card from my stash.  I've not bought any design papers for simply ages but the 'mountain' doesn't seem to diminish much!!  Both cards feature dry embossing and/or die cutting as well as the stamped and coloured images.  The sentiments were freebies downloaded from the generous Annette HERE and I resized them using My Craft Studio to fit a punch size that I have - printing a page of them so they are handy to punch out as and when required

Flower Stamp - Crafter's Companion
Pencils - Polychromos which are good for colouring onto kraft
Sentiments - downloadable (see link above)
Oval and round dies - Spellbinders
Borders on Blue Card - Scribble swirls die set Stampin' Up
