Color me happy with STAEDTLER and Stampendous


Its the third day of a colorful partnership with STAEDTLER products this week while we showcase our theme Up, Up and Away with new images from the Stampendous 2013 April Catalog.  You all know I love color, right? Well, it's not that easy to hold me back from using everything in the rainbow, but I think I managed to leave out... nope I got them all in, tee-hee.


I created a card with three sets (see list below) of new stamps on this card. After stamping out the Hot Air Trio in Jet Black Ranger ink (waterproof ink) I opened the glorious package of STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Aquarell Pencils and delicately started adding color. It wasn't long before I was using all the techniques and then some for applying color with these pencils onto the balloons. Dry on dry, dry on wet and wet on dry, and using the soft pastels as a resist in the sky.

I have had a set of the STAEDTLER Triplus Color pens that I've used on and off to add a solid color to a piece and also to use on journal pages for writing, but what I found was that they could be manipulated with water! This made the already vibrant color go beyond and then some.
There are some truly fun products by STAEDTLER and I can't wait to bring you MORE this Friday in our combined blog hop!

That's enough from me, now on to the give-aways!

  2. This is so beautiful! The more I see how these watercolor pencils are being used so creatively, the more I want to try them myself. The colouring you've done is perfect - this card is more a piece of artwork than a card. Lucky is the person who receives this card. KT
