Daily Marker Colouring Challenge: Beautiful Friend Fuchsias

I discovered my set of Karisma colouring pencils recently, which I had as a joint present with my sister when we were younger. These pencils are amazing to colour with, very soft and blendable. I thought I’d use them to colour this beautiful fuchsia from Clearly Besotted. 


How I made this card:

I stamped the image in light grey on to white cardstock. I used a light ink so it would almost disappear once the colouring was finished. 

I added base colour with my promarkers, then detail with the coloured pencils, building up the colour in layers from light to dark. I tried to make the flowers at the back lighter in colour to add depth to the image.

Once I’d finished my colouring, I die cut the card with a stitched square die. I stamped the sentiment in one corner. 

I added foam behind the square for dimension, then attached it to a card front, with a strip of chevron paper behind it. A few sequins finishes the card.

Products used to make this card:

  • Clearly Besotted Beautiful Friend stamp set
  • Promarkers
  • Colouring pencils
  • MFT Fresh Squeezed Chevron paper
  • Pretty Pink Posh sequins
  • Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Square dies
