Challenge 74 for Love to Craft Challenge Blog on the 1st of May, 2023


For challenge #74 for May/June 2023 of the Love to Craft Challenge Blog I decided to use a Simon Says Stamp set that I ordered last year in Stamptember. 

Here is my card for this month:

I used the main image from the Sunflower Fields stamp set and stamped it in Rich Cocoa Memento ink on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions. Once I had a clear image I coloured the image with the following Prismacolour pencils:
  • petals - canary yellow, cadmium orange hue, orange
  • green - apple green, spring green, true green
  • centres - burnt ochre
As usual, I have taken inspiration from the wonderful Alyce from Kit and Clowder and her Kit and Clowder Monthly Colouring Classes.

There is inspiration from the rest of the Love to Craft Challenge Blog DT over on the Love to Craft Challenge Blog, so please pop over to everyone's blog by clicking on their name. We always appreciate a comment or two! :) You can also find out what other challenges are out there, which could give you some ideas for your card or gift stash.
