I felt like colouring today so grabbed one of the stamp sets on my desk to have a bit of a play. The set is Critter Time from Penny Black. It is adorable! I picked out one of the super sweet images and stamped it on white, natural and kraft coloured cardstock. For the white and the natural cardstock I used my copics to colour the image and for the kraft cardstock I thought it might be interesting to use my Bruynzeel Pastel Pencils for something a little different.
I decided to use very similar colourways on each card and had it in my mind that I could use more of the Sugar Shoppe patterned paper from Doodlebug Design since it is still on my desk. I fussed around with the design and colour choices for way too long but eventually I had finished three new cards.
To be honest, I really only love one of the cards. The others are okay, but in my mind, they are only okay. Perhaps if I had chosen other papers, or design of card then I might love them more. To clarify, I like the coloured panels just not the finished design and that is part of the reason I am sharing all three cards today. The one I love the most is card number three. It is simple and pretty!
Here are the cards…
It is fun seeing how the same design coloured very similarly and adorned with similar supplies (patterned paper, etc) can end up so differently. Do you have a favourite of my three cards? Do you agree with me that card three is by far the best? Would love to hear your opinion. Thanks for stopping by today.
