Colorful Sweet peas

Hi everyone!

I am back for a quick post before the semester starts. Today I decided to have some fun with colored pencil and some sweet pea stamps from Altenew.


I have recently started to experiment with colored pencils and I just love how they look on top of kraft cardstock. The contrast in color is really beautiful.  Here, I follow Jennifer Mcguire advice of using gamsol (solvent) to easily blend the colors together. This blending trick makes even a newbie like me produce beautiful blends of color without a lot of effort.


I love the resulting cards! They are small and simple cards but have a delicate look that I was not expecting.

Hope you enjoyed the post and give colored pencils a try!

Materials used:

  1. Prismacolor colored pencils – 36 piece set (Az)
  2. Prismacolor colored pencils – Botanical garden set (Az)
  3. Altenew Sweet pea stamp set (Altenew)
