simple & sunny

Have you ever stamped on Kraft? One of the reasons I love it so much is that it is a mid-tone color. You can add white or dark to it, and both look lovely.

Today’s card features the latest Avocado Arts stamp set, Thoughts and Smiles. This is a sweet and cheery set, perfect for this time or year. The flowers are stamped and then colored in with watercolor pencils. Yes, these pencils color really well and you only have to add water if you want to. Super flexible. I like that.

I’ve also added in some white highlights to make the design pop. A white gel pen makes adding a wavy hand-drawn border easy and groups of three white dots around the flowers fill in the design.

Some of the Avocado Arts Design Team have a little inspiration to share with you today. These girls never fail to inspire me so take a peek…

Happy stamping!
