Hi there, I have a card to share this week featuring one of the lovely Prima Princesses, surprisingly large images that are perfect for a little colouring therapy as I was keen to see what my eyesight could cope with now that I’ve had one of my eyes sorted out. I really enjoyed it and hope you like how it turned out.
That’s Crafty! Dinky Stencils – Floral Background, Punchinella Background
Distress Inks – Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade
Colouring Pencils – mine are Spectrum Noir
A4 Sheet of Pink Card
Stamp the image on mixed media paper with the black ink. Despite the size, the image does stamp well but if in doubt about pressure, I can recommend placing the paper on the floor on a craft mat, laying the image on top and then standing on it. This may seem strange but it does work! I used to teach classes and this method used to go down well with some of my older ladies although they did have to hang on to their chair whilst doing it!
Colour the image with watercolour pencils, drawing out the colour with a dampened paint brush, and then add more detail with coloured pencils, particularly to the flowers.
Use the stencils with the Distress inks to add some pattern around the image. Just go with the flow until you’re happy with the effect and then ink around the edges with the pink after trimming the paper to fit your card blank. As the image is so large, I made my own card blank from a piece of A4 card, scored in half. You could also use an 8x8 pre-made card blank if you prefer.
I added the image panel to a narrow mat of black card for contrast and then glued it to the pink card blank. I finished off with some Big Chat stickers, which I coloured pink with the Distress ink before adding to the card.
