Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink


Floral Anniversary Card

I had this image to color, but I didn’t have the Copic colors to match the vision in my head. Luckily, I could make it work with colored pencils.

This card is a little different than most of my “circle main image” cards. This one, I cut the circle hole into the layer of purple, so the image is behind the purple instead of resting on top. The silver frame is on top of the purple.

Supplies: Stamps – Altenew, Paper Salon, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stardream Metallics Silver, Taylored Expressions Jelly Donut, ink – VersaFine Onyx Black, pencils & blender – Prismacolor, dies – Spellbinders, embossing powders – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, Ranger Silver Pearl.

Floral Birthday Card – Distress Oxide Watercoloring

I was inspired by this blog post by Jennifer McGuire РDistress Oxide Ink Watercolor .

So, I pulled out my 4 Distress Oxide Ink pads and got to work. I realized after starting to paint the flowers that I needed more colors. I mixed blue and pink, and then yellow and pink.

Jury duty update – the recording last night excused groups 20 – 39 for the rest of the week. I was in group 27. My civic duty is complete, for a calendar year, then my name goes back into the jury duty lottery in my county of residence.

Smooshed Floral Birthday Note Cards

Purple Floral on Kraft Birthday Card

I have seen several artists posting cards colored with colored pencils on kraft cardstock recently. I decided to give it a try. I have never tried to blend colored pencils (for this I used Prismacolor pencils) before, and it was really easy to do (and, BONUS! you can erase if you go outside the lines!).
