OLC with Pencil coloring

A simple pencil colored card  :) Inspired by so many beautiful pencil colored images shared on blogs I brought my color pencils out (they are very old ,from my school days !) I find layering colors using pencils tricky ,I could not go beyond three layers.So the results are just passable !

I have CASEd Shona's card to stamp the floral cluster. The lovely flowers are from dainty blooms(Mudra Craft Stamps). Did some masking and selective stamping.

Used happy anniversary from The Big ,the bold and Happy set (W & W ) to create a circular frame for the floral cluster.Kept it very simple (no sequins, no splatters )

I have not created much OLCs ,enjoyed creating this one ,hope you like it :)

  1. Such a sweet card, Pooja! I love your coloring.. it looks simple, but I bet it took time (somehow I find pencil coloring to be a bit more difficult than other media..but it is still fun, so I can't let it go!!) But I love the results, even if you say there's not much layering.. it looks lovely!
