birthday wishes in color pencil

For Mo's Challenge #195, kraft paper is the required 'ingredient', and I'm so glad that this was the theme, otherwise I would not have tried coloring on kraft paper with my colored pencils, and what a revelation it was to see the colors layered up beautifully against the neutral background. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it in time for the challenge...

Instead, this card is going into the Penny Black's Beat the Heat challenge

* Image from Penny Black - You are a Peach cling stamp (from the talented Mo Manning's range) - was stamped on kraft paper, and colored using my Derwent Colorsoft colored pencils
* the circle was die-cut using Quickutz Nesting Doily Circles



  1. Aww such an adorable image and fabulous coloring with the pencils!

  2. Colored pencils are one of my faves to use and you used them brilliantly!
