krafty rainbow colours

This was an experiment, but I'm very happy with how it turned out, so I thought I'd share.

Jennifer McGuire got me thinking about using coloured pencils on kraft cardstock, and I've just kinda had rainbows on the brain from some reason lately, so it all lead to this card.

Hero Arts design block dots & flowers stamped in white ink, then coloured over the white flowers with Derwent Inktense pencils. Heat embossed the sentiment (Hero Arts everyday sayings) and added extra dots in the flower centers with a white gel pen. A Sassafras blossom to finish it off.

It was a little time consuming, but very therapeutic!


  1. Wow Jen what an awesome card!!!! Those pencil colours are just gorgeous and so effective! Love clever thing!
