Floral BlissThe Birds and the Blooms

I stamped the flower using masking technique and colored with Copic makers and color pencils.


To create this card, I stamped the beautiful flowers on the white card stock, colored with Copic markers and colored pencils and fussy cut them with my Cutter Bee scissors.


I stamped the blossom using tattered rose distress ink for no-line watercoloring and colored with Kuretake watercolors.



STAMPlorations products Lee Ann used:

Pumpkin image is colored with Copics and the background is watercolored. On top of that , florishes are stenciled with clear embossing paste.


The oriole was colored with Copic markers.


Used masking and no line Copic coloring.

A good quality pencil sharpener is essential for coloring with colored pencils! You'll want your pencils to be super sharp to be able to fit the small areas in your heat embossing!

Close up of the shine on the image!

I've heat embossed the candle image with gold powder and colored in with Polychromos pencils. I added lots of Stickles and Wink of Stella.


Coloring in with pencils happens in layers. A finished area might have up to 6 layers of color (haven't really counted ever, sorry!). In the bottom you can see a petal with just one layer.

I've colored in the white heat embossed images with Polychromos pencils.


I've water colored the flower and added pencil (blended with Dove blender pen) on top.


Simply beautiful cards, don't you think? If you enjoyed and were inspired by today's post, come visit again in a couple of weeks because our second batch of guest designers -- Gwendolyn, Renee, and Vinita -- will be making their debut here on the blog with Wonderful Wednesday Coloring #7!

And if you want a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store, leave a comment here and on our guest designers' blogs by Tuesday, October 9. We'll announce the winner in the September Winners post on October 10.
