Stampendous and STAEDTLER Final Blog Hop

It’s now the final week of a colorful blog collaboration with the folks at STAEDTLER, the place where fine German craftsmanship meets gorgeous artistry. You’re familiar already with tons of STAEDTLER products, their Mars Eraser is legendary, and Fimo Clay is classic. We have been huge fans of their products for years, and their Karat Aquarelle pencils are Fran’s absolute favorite colored pencil.

For today’s STAEDTLER card I used some green Soft Pastel Chalks on watercolour paper:

I don’t know what made me try it but I thought the pastels would blend with water and thankfully it worked out!!

Once all of the colours blended together I let it dry and then treated it like patterned paper.

I used two great new stamp sets called Air Scapes and Hot Air Trio.
I had the crazy idea to colour the balloons in sepia tones to keep the card monochromatic. It’s fun shading with just one colour family – it give you the freedom to think about the light and shadow. (I used a combo of Copics and pastel chalk pencils)

Check out the full blog hop list! There are some great prizes up for grabs.
