Blooming with sweetness

Happy Valentine to all, but specially to my one and only beloved one.
Websters Pages papers are most delightful and so soft in their make-up, they really suit the Magnolia stamp.

My image is coloured with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. I am really pleased with the colouring and so love working with these pencils.

The tide always turns

Hello and welcome to my first card for the month. I used this lovely angling
Tilda with a cut from the Cricut cartridge Animal Kingdom. The papers I used are from K&Co Wild Saffron. The image is coloured with Polychromos colour pencils.

I do love the shading and blending possibilities I have with these Polychromos pencils and I had fun applying several shades of Stickles too.
