Hello friends, it's time for a new Graciellie Design's digital stamp release. I'm pretty excited about my card today because I've been watching some Youtube videos on coloring with colored pencils and picking up some tips to improve my work. I'm no where NEAR a professional - but I'm having fun learning and practicing with Graciellie digis! 

This new set is called "Together" and features some beautifully sketched roses and four new sentiments.

To create this card I:
  • printed my roses from Together on water color paper
  • colored them with Prismacolor Pencils and fussy cut them
  • added a burlap string bow to the center of my flowers
  • created a background with watered down Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide
  • printed a sentiment from the same digital set, fussy cut it, and glued it to the bottom corner

You did a fantastic job colouring the roses, they look beautiful! I colour with pencils a lot too, maybe I need to watch some more videos so I can get as good as this!! Love the loose coloured background and the string round the middle adds a lot of interest and dimension. I'm so glad you shared this with us at TIME OUT!
