From Start To Finish

When I'm designing stamps, I generally begin with a rough drawing in my sketch book, but as you can see, the finished image doesn't always turn out exactly like the initial design.


Pencils are a fabulous medium for card makers, you can get so many variations just by adjusting the pressure with which you apply the colour. I completed all these leaves with just three pencils - black, dark green and spring green (935, 908 & 913).


This image is one of the stamps from the "Christmas Bells" set, due for release on the 1st of October. I didn't colour the bell because I have other plans for it... but that's a card for another day!
