Morning Soft

I love this stamp set, it is so pretty. Thanks to a good friend of mine for getting it for me. You rock! This is my first try with the morning glory's. And I am becoming very attached to my gamsol and colored pencils for coloring in my images. Time will come and I will get better at it like some on SCS I have seen using the same things.
Doesn't this make ya think Spring? I am so ready for Spring, last week we had snow in Central MN and this week we have more coming. I would so welcome the rain right now and the green grass. So in honor of Spring coming my Morning Glory card.

Supplies needed:
Morning Soft Stamp set
Beyond the Basics small flower one
Colored Pencils & Q-tips
Word Punch
Lavender Lace, Whisper White, Black and Lovely Lilac card stock
Black Stazon Ink
yellow brad

Basic card is
4 1/4 x 5 1/2, our normal size we do cards with. Stamp this with the small background stamp with the small flowers in Beyond the Basics set, with Black Stazon ink. Color in the flowers with colored pencils and the leaves in green.
Whisper White cut at 4 5/16 x 3 11/16. Stamp Morning Glory in Black Stazon. This works the best as the ink don't run when working with the gamsol. Color in image with colored pencils and gamsol. I used purple and green from Crayola Colored Pencils. And put a dash of yellow in the center. Set aside to dry and cut a piece of Lovely Lilac at 3 15/16 x 4 9/16. Mount the Morning Glory colored piece to this. With the word punch, punch a Lovely Lilac Piece fold in half and attach to bottom left side with a yellow brad.
Cut black card stock at 2 9/16 x 4 1/4, cut Lovely Lilac at 2 5/16. Mount in center or black and place in the middle of your stamped card. Lastly layer the Morning Glory piece over that.
Hope you enjoy today's project. I didn't have my cutter by me and had a ruler so went by the ruler for measurements. I hope that don't confuse anyone.

For those of you wondering how to use gamsol and colored pencils here is a turtorial SCS. The technique is called Gamsol Magic.
