Playground Pals

Hello there, I’ve not done any form of colouring for nearly two years now, so I’ve neglected my colouring as you can imagine, rusty to say the least too. So with that said I cracked on and got out those colouring pencils.

So glad I did, truly love the process of colouring again and love falling back into love with the medium.

Stamped the wonderful images from Clearly Besotted Playground Pals stamp set using my stamp platform, white card and versafine onyx black ink pad.

Cut out the stamps using the matching die set and ran through a die cutting machine. I prefer to colour the images after I’ve cut them out, so I used coloured pencils for that.

Created A2 US card blank cut down from a sheet A4 card, I used the card in landscape for this design. Took one of smaller dies from the Waffle Flower A2 Layers Dies.

Cut out several pieces of rectangles out of brights coredinations cardstock in rainbow order of course, that’s a must. Adhered the coloured card strips onto piece of scrap card and then adhered to card blank using double sided foam tape.

Adhered the die cut images using double side tape to bottom and double sided foam tape to the top of the die cut, to balance the die cut out.

Cut narrow strip from black card, placed into my stamp platform and stamped the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Stamps Playground Pals set, using a watermark pad ink pad, poured over white embossing powder and heat set with heat too. Adhered the sentiment strip onto to the top left of the card blank, with double sided foam tape.

I have liked the newer version of the Clearly Besotted Playground Pals Stamp Set, I originally purchased the first set that was produced. Sadly I’m unable link a store that stocks Core’dinations Cardstock as this is currently unavailable.

It was lovely to get back into pencil colouring again after such a long time, I’m definitely not going to leave it that long next time. I would like to express my thanks for popping by today. Please do leave comment below and let me know your thoughts. I will be back soon with my next creation.
