Winnie & Walter – Leading Lady Week 5 + GIVEAWAY

Hi Everyone!

This is the final week of my Leading Lady series for Winnie & Walter!  It has been so fun coloring with different color mediums using WW products!

Today’s cards are extra special because I played with Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils for all the images – for the FIRST time!  I’ve used colored pencils to add color/depth to already stamped images, but have never used them for full images – so have mercy on me!  This was a lot of trial and error for me.

Julie's Roses

These flowers from the set The Big, the Bold and Extras are my favorite!  Did you know that there was a special set called “Julie’s Roses” that are the same flowers, but bigger?  It’s the bigger ones you see above.  Don’t worry, I believe Winnie & Walter will be releasing that set in the near future!

I did some tone-on-tone stamping in hopes of doing no-line coloring with these images.  I stamped a bunch on the same craft cardstock that you see and colored the images one at a time.  I started with the leaves – applying the darkest color in the shaded areas first, blended out with the medium green, then the lightest green. When I was done, I went over the tips and the leaf veins to add some highlights with a white colored pencil.

As mentioned above, this was a trial for me.  I had mentioned using the darkest color first for the leaves also.  You’ll notice that the two pink roses are different.  The lighter one is colored with a base of white down first.  I don’t think there’s a wrong way to color – just personal preference in how you want your images to look.  The colors are definitely more vibrant with a base of white, but I think there is more depth to the image when colored without a base of white first.

I colored enough images to make two cards.  It’s easy to arrange floral arrangements anywhere on your card – but these are my go-go.  I love bold sentiment strips embossed in white also.

Polychromos colors used:  101, 129, 125, 133, 119, 139, 137, 159, 163, 166.


If you’ve been following along the past 5 weeks, you’ll know that a $30 gift card is up for grabs!  Comment on this post and let me know which of the cards I’ve is your favorite for you chance to win!  I’ll choose a winner next Saturday, July 7th and the gift card will be issued by Winnie & Walter.   Congratulations, Denise Bryant!  Shay from Winnie & Walter will be contacting you about your gift card.  Thank you all for your comments and wonderful feedback.  I appreciate it!

  1. For me it’s hard to decide between week 4 –fabulous coloring pencils or week 1 shaker- it’s a different kind of shaker,and it’s colored beautifully. If I have to choose–I go with week 1. Thanks for the chance to win.

  2. Thanks for a month of wonderful inspiration! I love the way these colored pencils work with the floral stamps but my favorite card was the adorable pup and doghouse design. That cute puppy reminds me so much of my own dog when he was a little guy.
