Uninked Stamps


Well, I have been a bit remiss is posting as much as I usually do lately. I have been pretty busy, but life is soon to go back to it's normal pace. I have decided to start a little challenge for myself that makes me ink up those stamps that have never seen ink or haven't seen it in a long time. The card above uses one such stamp. It's called Peony Square by Stampendous. I colored it with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I am working on a post that will share with you the differences between papers I've tried for sucess with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I am personally convinced that I have found the best paper for using both mediums either seperately or together and also giving some tips that I find useful in coloring. I hope you enjoy this card and will join me in inking up some stamps that haven't seen an ink pad in too long:) If you do let me know, I'd love to come take a peek!

Supplies:
Stamps: Peony Square, Stampendous, PTI sentiment
Paper: BG Sultry, BoBunny green polka dots, The Paper Co.
Tools: EK Success scallop border punch
Other: PTI ribbon, Copics, Prismacolor pencils

Gorgeous! I love that image! I'd be very interested to see how you color with copics and Prismas...I've never used pencils before, but I know a lot of people do for more shading, right?
