Creative Fingers Challenge is back!

Hello! Today, I’m with Creative Fingers Challenge Blog, for their first challenge of 2018. This month has an anything goes theme and all entrants will be in the running for a lovely wafer die.

For my inspiration card, I’ve chosen to do some stamping and coloring. I decided to try out my new Altenew Frosted Garden stamp set and bring it to life with my Prismacolor Pencils.

I started with a piece of 5″×7″ black cardstock and placed it into the centre of my Misti Stamping Tool. I laid out all the different floral stamps around the edge of the card and picked them up with the Misti lid. This made all the stamping easy because I could stamp all the flowers at the same time. I inked them all up with Memento Luxe Wedding Dress pigment ink and double stamped the images, to make sure I had a good, solid coverage on the black card.

I also stamped a quick sentiment while I had the Misti out. I chose a pretty birthday greeting from the Clearly Besotted Scrumptious Script Stamp Set and, again used Memento Luxe Wedding Dress pigment ink to double stamp the greeting. I set the card aside to dry naturally overnight but I could have used a heat tool to speed things up.

Once everything was dry, I began coloring all the images by simply going over all the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils. I’ve found the wax based pencils work best over this particular pigment ink. I also used my white pencil to lightly overlay the greeting, just to give it a consistent look to the flowers.

I added some white dots to each of the stamens and some dots around them, to imitate pollen blowing off in the breeze. I also finished off the panel by ruling a white border around the edge, using a Sakura Gelly Roll White pen.

I glued the panel to a white, 5″×7″ card using PVA glue and popped it all under a book while it dried, just to stop any potential buckling.

It was nice to do some stamping again after, what feels like such a long time. I hope this card inspires you to create using a technique you haven’t tried for a while. I look forward to seeing what you create as your entry into the Creative Fingers January Challenge.

Thanks so much for spending time with me today. I look forward to next time…😊

  1. Wonderful tutorial! I didn’t know Prismacolors worked on black paper and that’s a new color of ink to me. Now I am inspired! Thanks so much. Your card is beautiful!
