Pull out your coloring supplies! It’s the 22nd of the month, and that means I have a NEW Paint-a-Flower stamp set for you from Altenew! You should be arriving from the lovely Virginia Lu’s blog.

Hello Rose

Unlike last month’s PAF (which was the first one, by the way), we have TWO images for you to color. There’s a beautiful single, and a trio arrangement. You’re going to love all the ways the Designer’s used these images!

Of course, if you want to make sure you don’t miss out on these lovely coloring sets, sign up for the monthly subscription!

Simple Shading

Sometimes, an image doesn’t need color to make a statement. I loved the beauty of this single bloom arrangement and didn’t want to distract from the thoughtfulness of the design. So, I stamped it in Obsidian Black and took to my graphite pencils to add some simple shading to make the image pop.

On the flip side

If super simple isn’t your thing, You could whip out the new Artist Watercolor 24 pan set and spend a while getting all the detail just right like I did for my second design.

  1. Love, love, love the gray one! What an inspiring way to use a tool we all have! So creative. The pink one is very pretty as well. Simple yet full of impact. Great job!

  2. Both of your cards are gorgeous! The graphite pencil card is stunning! I never knew you could color with graphite pencils! Thank you for the tutorial!

  3. Lovely inspiraton! This new PAF set is gorgeous, the images are very pretty and the sentiments are must haves! Your cards are beautiful Nicole, love the graphite pencil look and watercolored images as wells. I cannot wait to own this set and play with the new watercolor paints! Thanks for your Crafter’s Toolbox video!

  4. Both cards are beautiful. Thank you for sharing the video on the graphite card. I’ll be giving it a try
    when my stamp set arrives.

  5. I really like both of your cards! The gray one can easily be a masculine card, even with flowers on the cover (there are plenty of guys who like flowers). The other I could imagine on an antique dresser doily – beautiful and dainty. Thank you for sharing your time and talent for us!

  6. Both of your cards look gorgeous! I really love the look of the simple shading on your first card. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your technique!

  7. Beautiful cards! You and Jaycee make me want to try graphite pencils. Do you recommend a particular brand and do you need to seal it? Thank you.
