I enjoyed being a guest designer for Purple Onion Designs so much recently that I jumped at the chance to keep going! I have loved Stacey Yacula’s designs for quite some time, so it’s great to have a good excuse to get my collection inked up and on some cards. Hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do.
Holly Mouse Birthday Card
The Holly mouse stamp I used on this card happens to be one of the first Purple Onion Designs stamps I bought, quite a while ago now! She’s just the cutest, and when I looked through my collection recently it occurred to me she would look adorable springing out from behind a big pile of gifts.
I’ve been working on a big batch of images using Copic markers over the last week, so I decided to change things up and reach for my coloured pencils. I coloured everything using the Derwent Procolour pencils *, which I really love to work with. I simply used the pencils on their own to colour the images, no solvent or blending stumps.
NOTE: I have a post talking about my favourite pencil sharpeners for use with coloured pencil that you may find useful: My Favourite Pencil Sharpeners.
The images were all stamped on my favourite paper for coloured pencils: Bockingford Hot Pressed Watercolour Paper *
Derwent Procolour Pencils Used:
Mouse: Gunmetal, Storm Grey, Felt Grey, Pink Madder Lake, Light Moss Hat: Yellow Ochre, Heather, Dark Violet, Moss Green, Magenta, Heather Background: Mid Ultramarine, Sky Blue
Gifts: Spectrum Orange, Delft Blue, Mid Ultramarine, Sky Blue / Yellow Ochre, Blue Violet Lake, Dark Violet / Moss Green, Magenta, Heather Ribbons: Gunmetal, Storm Grey, Felt Grey, Chinese White
Thanks for stopping by!
