I wanted to try one of Ching-chou Kuik's design stamps and decided it was time to order one from Crafts and Me I'm so pleased I did, this stamp is called 'Flowing in Blue and delivers on detail lots of it. I've coloured the image with Pro Markers and decided to leave the card as simple as possible, there are times when less is more especially as I wanted the image to be the focal point of the card. I've also dotted small gems on the hair but these are not showing up to well on the picture.
I love working with Pro Markers but they are not the easiest of mediums to work with and getting the right card is a difficulty in itself, after a bit of trial and error I've found Rymans Bright white coated card 200gsm is my favourite. The colour stays damp for quite a while which means I can work wet in wet with the pigment making it so much easier to blend different colours together. I always us Brilliance Lightning black pigment ink to stamp my images, it's waterproof so I can use all water based mediums including Pro Markers.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges
