Wisteria Framed Door for Creative Expressions


Every now and again I like to get back to basics and get my colouring pencils out. I love this Gothic Gateway door stamp from Creative Expressions. People may already know I have a thing about old doors, as I've mentioned before in previous posts. 


In my own little fantasy world I thought of beautiful hanging Wisteria flowers around the door, but I didn't have a stamp so I just drew them on. I adore the colour against the kraft card.

I've used Prisma Colour pencils, they have very yummy high pigmentation hence the vivid colour, they're a bit pricey but worth it.


I started with the stamp and just a brown pencil


Added some highlight from a white pencil


I drew some branches, and then just coloured in lots of foliage and the flowers.


 I love the blue and the purple together, against the door. 



I know who I'd like to give this to :)


The sentiment is from the Beaded Swirl set from Creative Expressions too.

The weekend is nearly here, and it looks like it's going to be a sunny one, I hope so, I still have so much to do!
Have a good one.
