Hi there everyone! Erum here today, and I’m sharing a pencil-colored card with you featuring the Build-A-Flower: Cattleya Stamp Set.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Cattleya | Mandala Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0To begin, I stamped the Build-A-Flower: Cattleya with Permanent Black Ink onto a regular white cardstock. Next, I used my writing pencil to color the image. To increase the intensity of the shading, just press the pencil a bit hard on paper. In order to add light shading, I worked with a very light hand.

Next, I die cut the image and set it aside.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Cattleya | Mandala Die | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0I die cut a window out of my card front and another same sized panel out of Create-A-Wreath Die Set. I also die cut the Mandala Die and sandwiched it between the two layers to make my lacy window. On the front, I adhered the image that I colored with foam tape.
