STAEDTLER and Stampendous Blog Hop

 It's the grande finale hop today. I've so enjoyed using STAEDTLER fine art supplies to color my Stampendous images. Thank you to our coordinators April and Laura for creating such a wonderful week of great inspiration.

It's so great that there are prizes! Oh yeah. Feel free to check out the details below so I can get right to my sample share.



My project today is a quick one. I stamped the Jumbo Calla Lily stamps on mixed media paper and then stared at it for bit. I grabbed two chalks and created the foundation colors. Then I lightened up the petals some more with a lighter color. I switched to the Ergosoft watercolor pencils and added greens to the stems and blues to the background. I did add some scarlet to the centers of the flowers. Now then, I had in my package a few graphite pencils and pigment liners to use so I just started doodling around the flowers. This is too big for a card, but I think it will be a great little framed piece I'll keep in my studio to brighten my day. :)


The Stampendous prize package will include one prize package per day (total of 5 packages) from those folks commenting on our bloggers that day. Our package will include SSC1171 Hot Air Scapes Perfectly Clear Stamps and our SSC1170 Soaring Sentiments Perfectly Clear Stamps plus a Jumbo acrylic handle for use with them. STAEDTLER prize package will be awarded at the end of the week, one for each of their bloggers from all commenters on that blog that week – package includes: 1 Set of 6 Triplus fineliners, pastel assortment 4 blocks of FIMO soft oven-bake clay in vanilla, peach, lilac and mint 1 Mars plastic eraser 1 Double hole metal pencil sharpener 1 Mars Lumograph sketch pencil 1 Pigment liner sketch pen 2 Creative idea brochures
