Card with pencil coloured flowers

I'm still playing with my new MFT Fresh-Cut Flowers. The last time I coloured them with Schmincke Horadam Aquarelle colours (you can see it here), but on this card, I used Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

I stamped the image with MFT Hybrid ink (Latte) on Neenah Desert Storm (110lb) paper. The paper was cut out with Die-Namics, A2 Stitched Rectangle.

Then I coloured the following Polychromos pencils: Walnut Brown, Cadmium Yellow, May Green, Earth Green Yellowish, Permanent Green Olive, Light Flesh, Medium Flesh, Rose Carmine, Alizarin Crimson, Dark Red, Magenta.

The text is part of the Essential Sentiments set and was stamped with Chocolate Hybrid ink and cut out with Die-Namics Fishtail Sentiment Strip.

In the end, I sprayed the card with a fixative.

With my card, I would like to join the Craft Stamper Magazine TIMI challenge: Anything goes

I hope you like it!!! Thank you for stopping by!!!

P.S. Woohoo!!! My card was spotted on the MFT Challenge Blog!!! Thank you so much, MFT!!!


  1. WOW! This is simply stunning. Your colouring is beautiful, those flowers look real. Thank you for playing along with the Craft Stamper challenge xx

  2. I'm visiting from the MFT blog because I wanted to learn how you made your card. It is so gorgeous! I love how the pencils make the flowers look so soft & smooth. I like the blue one you did with the silver embossing too. I forget that colored pencils can be so pretty!

  3. Oh My, your coloring is simply beautiful!
    What fixative did you use?

    1. Hello Pat, thank you for your kind comment!!! I used an all purpose fixative, it's called Artists' Soft Fixative from ColArt. It's a German product. But I learned that the Winsor&Newton fixative was good too.

    2. But if you need something quickly you can use your hairspray :-D

  4. I came back to view your beautiful coloring again....
    Thanks so much for your reply on the fixative.
    I recently received the Faber-Castell pencils and hope to improve my skills. I certainly admire your work!


Thank you for your lovely comments, I really appreciate it!
