Shaped Card - Kitten with Flowers

Shaped Card
Hi friends, this card combines a lot of things I love...die cutting, handmade flowers and experimenting!!
The experiment is my baby steps into coloring stamps! The little kitten with flowers is a clear stamp from Crafty Sentiments I had won way back in 2011[see post] but only now worked up the courage to showcase in a card!
Handmade Flowers
 This card has an array of handmade flowers and here are the dies I used to make them.
  • Yellow Foam Flower :Cheery Lynn  Sunflower die using Daisy Flower Tutorial 
  • Purple Rose : Spellbinders Rose Creations  using Easy Rose Tutorial 
  • Pink Foam Rose : Spellbinders Bauble Blossoms 1
  • Tiny Rose : Cheery Lynn  Miniature Rose using techniques similar to this Punchcraft Rose Tutorial 
  • Magnolia : Spellbinders Magnolia die
  • Leaves : Heartfelt creations Classic Leaf stamp and die, Heartfelt Creations Botanical Wings die stamp and die
Crackle background and handmade roses
 I used a pretty paper from Lemoncraft and added some stenciling with Platinum crackle paste on one corner.
Handmade Rose
 The cute little teapot is a metal charm and so is the little bucket hanging from under the flowers!
Handmade Flowers
The cute kitten was colored with zig watercolor brush-pens and though awash with imperfections I talked myself into using it on this card!
I am not a  natural as far as coloring skills go but slowly trying to actively work up the patience to color stamps and build up the courage to blog my amateur attempts !!

  12. Adorable kitty, and you coloured her so well! Love the stencil paste added to the beautiful paper and the shape of your card! Your fablous flowers always make me blowing up... they are wonderful!
    I like all the colours mediums, but for stamps I prefer alcohol markers, they are more easy for me, because they give me more control. I would like try watercolouring with distress inks, too, but I think it's more difficult.

  13. Doesn't look like to me you need any practice at all on your coloring. It's beautiful and so is this gorgeous card!
    I usually use Copics or colored pencils for my coloring. I'm terrible with watercolors and never can get it to look good.

  16. Your colouring is lovely and kitty looks perfectly at home amongst your gorgeous handmade flowers. I'm not a natural with colouring. I find it so hard to work out light source and where it will be casting shadows. If I do colour I like Promarkers as they have a nice bullet nib one end. I much prefer to work with water colours and love using the Marvy Le PLume II water based ink pens. Again they have a very, very fine nib perfect for drawing in the outlines and then a lovely soft paint brush shape the other end. You will find the right medium for yourself through trial and error. Hugs Mrs A.

  23. Gorgeous card! Your colouring of the kitten is wonderful, I can't believe it's your first attempt! You've created a fabulous garden of handcrafted flowers, they look as good as bought ones. Great choice of dies that work so well together.
    My favourite colouring medium is Copic alcohol pens but I'm just trying Prismacolor Pencils out at the moment. Debra x

  42. Hi Sonia
    Your card is beautiful! Your colouring is so pretty and I think you have done a marvelous job of finding the light and shadow that is not something that \i am very good at. i struggle with colouring i used to use copics but have got into coloured pencil crayons lately. Have even coloured with chalk!
    Your flowers are so amazing, So many different types and all so beautiful.

  43. Sonia this is stunning! You shouldn't be nervous of colouring hun because the kitten looks great. I do understand though, my colouring is not always as good as it should be and it takes me quite a bit of time these days as I struggling not to just blob on the colour but include light and shade too lol! You would never guess that your flowers are home made as they look better than WOC flowers, I own quite a few of them so I know. Thank you so much for the lovely comment on my crackled heart, it means a lot xx
