Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 40

Today is Day 40 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge.  This week is all about using charcoal and pastels.

I had an off cut of white card measuring 95mm square, so decided to use that as the base. I coloured it using Van Goch Pastel Pencils, blending the colours together, by rubbing my finger tip across the surface.  The colours I used were Blue, Mauve, Pink and Green.  

I then used "Della Blue" Elements Ink through the Funky Fossil Designs "Shoal of fish stencil".  While the ink was out, I inked the edges of the card using a finger dabber.

I mounted the card on to a piece of dark blue paper and then on to a card blank.

On an off cut of white card, using "Della Blue "Elements Ink again, I stamped the "Swim your own way" sentiment, which is part of a stamp set called "Wierd Fish" by Funky Fossil Designs. I cut the sentiment up into words and glued them in to position using wet glue. 

Finally, using a silver glitter and a white gel pen, I added extra dots around the shoal of fish.


  1. I love your fun shoal of fish Sam and the blended pastels give a pretty range of tones to the background, and the added words are lovely, and finished also with the little silver glitter and white gel pen dots which look like little bubbles or pinpricks of light..a beautiful card. x
