Less is More #336/#337 & AAA Cards Challenge #94

Hello and Welcome to my blog.
I made a card for both the Less Is More #336/#337 & AAA Cards Challenge #94, which share the same theme "One Layer Card Colored Cardbase".
(Click the image below to link to the challenge site.)







So here's my card. 




I made a A2 size card base with kraft cardstock paper, then stamped images with memento black ink, them colored them with prismacolor polychromo pencils. 
Sentiments were stamped with versafine ink.




  
The colors I used are : pc1086, 1040, 103, 1100 for flower, 1004, 1005, 1097 for leaves.





I made another card, and actually this was the first one, but I didn't like color schemes so I made the blue one shown above.


  This was also colored with polychromo pencils.





Thanks for reading this post.
Hope you enjoyed it.
The stamps sets I used are "Garden Treasure" & "Smile More" from Altenew.



Blessings
From Marge

Wow, these are gorgeous, Marge! Such beautiful stamping and colouring. I was just considering what I would make for this challenge but you've really nailed it!

Stunning card Marge! Love the beautiful coloring!

Marge said...

Oh thank you so much Sue!♡
I had the same thoughts with you, but soon inspired by DT members' cards :) . Polychromos on kraft papers is too plain, so I will think of new more designs...I'm not sure I'll make it though.
