These New Stamps from Spellbinders® are so adorable!
Here are my affiliate links for the line of stamps in this House-Mouse collection. I used Bouquet for you, Popping By and Daisy Mouse. See below on how I used the stamps with my Cricut® Machine!
I wanted to play off the old black and white photos where you had just a hint of color to them . I used high pigment colored pencils & then added some glitter glues to dress it up. I think these would be great with the Watercolor Pencils as well, you might try using them dry!

Tim Holt Watercolor Pencils - https://shrsl.com/43uqu (I used a regular colored pencil not watercolor!)
I used the Spellbinders stamp to stamp on a smooth card stock.
Then I took a photo and uploaded them into Design Space®. When uploading I simply cleared the background only not the inside of the image, and saved it as a print then cut.
I added the images to my canvas and created and offset for the images. I made this offset white and then made another slightly larger offset and made it the color I wanted to have peeping around it.
I flattened my image to the smaller white offset to give my image a white border.
I then selected a square and made a white rectangular panel for my card and a slightly larger one for my foil panel and made a 5 x 7 card base.
I selected the white smaller card panel and placed my color offset on the panel in the position I wanted and flatten it to the square white panel. My sentiment s were created the same way as the image.
I then saved my design and cut the project. If you prefer you can use smooth card stock, I intentionally used a textured card stock to print mine for a little added "canvas look" interest to the cards. If you do this color them very lightly with your pencils. If you get too heavy handed ...gently erase it will remove some of the color.
