Remind me of the warm summer days...

I really LOVE warm summer days. So when the colder days come : remind me of the warm summer days... These are the colors to go with it as far as I am concerned. 
This stencil is an all-timer... also so versatile!!!
 I am busy with a wall-hanger with this stencil also, but you will have to do with this card today ! :) 

I used structure paste and distress inks to create it.

Reminder for the challenge at Craft Stamper !

A reminder post for the monthly challenge at The Craft Stamper! 

For the challenge, we would like to to use your pens and pencils on your projects! You could draw or sketch a design, or use the pens and pencils for colouring. Copics, Distress Markers, Spectrum Noirs, watercolour pencils, paint pens and markers, whatever floats your boat! You could add detail with fine liner pens, gel pens or smudgy Stabilo pencil..... the only limit is your imagination! Remember though, there MUST be real stamping on your project. Digital images CAN be used, but must be used alongside  rubber/acrylic stamping. Have fun!

I used watercolorpencils to color the flowers; 
also used them to color the script stamp, and stamp with it.

Herbarium fun ...

 I had some playtime in my Art Journal, an old agenda. 
Two pages for you today, with the same beautiful stencil, the herbarium 12x12. 

 I started just playing around, without even thinking of what I wanted to achieve. Only the stencil and two colours of some Gelatos type sticks.
By using a baby wipe, you can easily take color away as well, that's how I achieved the layered look. 
I've also used the same stencil and a Magenta stamp to add some script.


I've sponged the same leaf onto a separate piece of cardstock, cut it out, and added the back clean side to the page. It looks like a diecut, but it isn't. As you can see I've used the stencil to make it!  I LOVE to use my stencils this way. 

****
 On this page I played with the same stencil (and stamp from Magenta) some more: 



 Go grab your stencils, and play!
