Wonderful Wednesday: Coloured Pencil Little Bits Mummy Video

Little Bits Mummy Halloween Card

As much as I love creating larger stamped scenes, sometime it’s just fun to play with a smaller area. Little Bits stamps are perfect for this!

Stamps Used: Little Bits Mummy, Frankie & Ghosty , Little Bits Haunted House Outdoor Decor (alternative: Littles Mummy & The Tombstone)

I masked and stamped the stamps from two sets to create my scene on Kraft card before colouring with Caran D’Ache Pablo coloured pencils. Alternatively there is a stamp that gives you a similar complete scene. All are linked above.

Wonderful Wednesday: I Miss Your Face Card & Harry the Stuffie Scene Video

Miss Your Face Card

My last few posts have featured freehand coloured backgrounds. If you feel a little daunted at starting from scratch with a blank background, backdrop stamps are still a great option! Use them as a jumping off point, and add some small details of your own. That way you can easily stretch your background stamps to fit all sorts of occasions and scenes.

Wonderful Wednesday: Littles Playing in the Leaves Copic Scene Video

Littles Playing in The Leaves Card

I had a little less time available, so I kept the scene smaller and simpler than Monday’s card. Hopefully it shows you how you can create an effective scene and tell a fun little story in a simple way. I find the Littles and Little Bits stamps great for this. The stamps are illustrated in a simple yet cute style, so there’s less pressure to create a detailed setting for them.

Stamps Used: Littles Playing in the LeavesCelebrate & Congratulate Sentiment Set

The set I used comes with the girl in the leaves as a complete image, with three individual leaf stamps you can use to create falling leaves. If you would like more options for scene building, you can get the Little Bits Fall Fruit Collection set and Little Bits Nature Collection set, which you can use to mask and build the scene yourself.

As you can see, I chose to colour the girl’s hair brown. Reflex I think, when picking up the markers. I reach for the browns so often for hair, that I do it without thinking! To help her stand out against the tree, I went in with a white Luminance coloured pencil at the end to give her some strong highlights.

Wonderful Wednesday: Littles & Fall Backdrop Autumn Scene Colouring Video

Fantastic Fall Slimline Card

That little hedgie. Those pumpkins. *HAPPY SIGH*

I used the Fall Backdrop stamp to give the characters a setting. The stamp isn’t long enough to fill a slimline card, but it is easily altered by just extending the line of the hill with a black fineliner. Just a really simple way to literally stretch your background stamps.

That dress offers a really fun blank canvas to play with creating pleats and folds, adding patterns, or both! Paper piecing is another great way to tackle it, especially with a little marker shading on top.
