August 2018 Card Kit – More Card Kit Inspiration with Kristina Werner!
Hi all! Kristina here with some more card kit inspiration! The flower images in the August 2018 Card Kit are gorgeous! I couldn’t resist creating a one-layer card using the Mandy’s Flower Shed stamp set.
I love the look of colored pencil on a dark surface, so I used some Slate cardstock as my card base. I wanted just the flowers (the tops of the jar image and flower pot image), so I masked off the bottom and sides of the card and stamped the tops of those images in VersaMark Ink. I applied some white embossing powder and then heat set it. I also stamped and embossed the “Thank You” from the stamp set.
Before removing the masking, I ink blended some white pigment ink around the area.
Then I colored the flowers and leaves with Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. For the flowers, I first colored a light layer of white and then added colors on top. This makes the colors more vibrant.
I hope you enjoy today’s card! You can pick up the August 2018 Card Kit here, or you can subscribe to receive this kit and future kits.
Oh my goodness Kristina this is beautiful. I would not have thought to use this stamp like this but I certainly will now. You have the most incredible mind for these things. Well done!

Beautiful card! I wouldn’t have thought to stamp flowers on such a dark gray but I absolutely love the look. Love it when you use colored pencils, too. This is also a way to extend the use of these stamps. Thanks so much for sharing!
Love that cardstock. What a great use of the flowers. Nicely done.
Beautiful colouring x
Gorgeous Kristina! I need to consider doing this with some of my other stamp sets–it’s so pretty!

Love it, I meant to say! So beautiful – Kristinas colouring is always mesmerising!
Beautiful card! I love how you used just the floral part of the stamps on your design. The pencil coloring on the dark cardstock is gorgeous, and the white ink blending gives the card an early morning misty feel to it!
Love it! I pinned to remind myself to give this a try. It looks a lot easier than watercolors! Thanks!
OW! I love the soft look of the white pigment ink blended in the background, great layout and coloring!
That is so so pretty – looks like stained glass
Gorgeous card and coloring, I love the slate cardstock!
Such a gorgeous card!
Thanks for sharing….
I would never have thought to do this! It’s beautiful!
I love how you utilized the card kit for August. Love that colored pencil technique. I have some brown wrapping paper that looks like embossed flowers (white) and tried some of that coloring on it. It came out great and think I will make a card using it. Thanks for your inspiration.
WOW! This card is just beautiful – thank you so much!!!
