Flowers for a lady

I have been trying to poke my (crafting) mojo in order to kick it into action...

I stamped one of my latest rubber stamp, Movie strip collage from Chocolate Baroque and coloured the image with pencils, taking my time tickling the paper until satisfied.
I find this technique therapeutic, it does relax the mind and gives a lot of control, unlike markers, which prevents disasters.

Coloured pencil on stamped Movie strip collage

I added stencilling with Leaf Trails (Lavinia) and die-cuts to finish.

The arrow is from the MFT Blueprint set 7 cut from a STAMPlorations clear sticker (Mixed Media Backgrounds #2) , the flower from a very old All Occasion die and the Best Wishes from STAMPlorations Everyday Sentiments.

That's all for today but I hope there will be more soon!

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the SSS Wednesday, We Love Chocolate BaroqueStamping Sensations,  Allsorts, Addicted to stamps,  Paperbabe and Unikostudio challenges.


  1. Oh wow that is super gorgeous!!! Your colouring is totally amazing!! Thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations this month!

  2. When I saw this one my reading list I just knew it was coming my way, beautifully coloured Christine and such intensity of the bloom. I just wish I could find colouring therapeutic as so many do, sadly I don't and usually end up just getting frustrated.

    As always it's lovely to see you at We Love Chocolate Baroque, Allsorts and Stamping Sensations, thank you so much for taking the time to join in.
