Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 43

It's Day 43 of Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challnege.  As it is Sunday, there is a new theme, this week is all about stamps and stamping.

I started with a square piece of card.  Using a black fine liner pen, I drew a square.  Then within that square, I drew four more squares.

I painted each of the four boxes a different colour using Prima "Tropicals" water colour paints.

Once the paint was dry, which was almost immediately I used Versafine Clair "Nocturne" black ink to stamp each of the Lavinia Stamps animals.  The stamps I have used are "Mooch" the cat, the "Snail Set", the "Large Owls" and one of the hares from the "Whimsical Hares" stamp set.

I outlined the stamping using a white Uniball Signo pen.  I added a touch of colour to the snail shell using  pastel pencils as the orange was a bit too strong on the shell area.

I decided that I would doodle in the background of each of the boxes.  I used a gold gel pen to create dots in the hare box.  I used a black fine liner pen to add squiggly horizontal lines with dots in the Mooch box.  In the snail box I drew lots of circles with the fine liner, then filled in the gaps between the circles using the same pen.  Finally, behind the owl, I used a black fine liner pen to draw broken vertical lines with green dots of gel pen between the breaks in the lines.


  1. Awesome card Sam, love the description and your doodles xx

  2. What a brilliant card Sam, and I just adore the sweet Lavinia stamp images and all the different doodles and pen highlights, and the outside doodled boxes look great too. I really love the way the snail looks as though he is looking down at the cat and the cat seems to have his eye on the owl..lol. x
