Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge - Day 42

Today is Day 42 of the Tiffany Johnson Creative #100daysartplay Challenge.  This is the last day of charcoal / pastel week.

For the background, I have used lots of colours of Faber Castell "Soft Pastel Sticks", blending the colours lightly with my finger tip.  I spritzed the surface with hair spray to set the pastel on the surface rather than on me!

For the broad patterned lines, I used Versafine Clair "Nocture" black ink to stamp one of the Funky Fossil Designs "Doodle Borders".  Then I coloured in the edges in black.

I drew squiggly lines, dashes and lots of circles from the top left, drifting down to the bottom right hand corner, colouring them with a white gel pen, but the white was quite weak, which wasn't the look I was after, so I decided to cover them with Ranger White "Enamel Accents".  Finally adding a few touches of coloured Posca Pen across the surface and a Tim Holtz, Idea-ology "Big Chat" Word Sticker.



  1. A beautiful mix of colours using your stick pastels Sam, and love the doodle borders stamp and the enamel accents you have added, and also the 'happiness' word sticker which is a lovely finishing touch..I think this is a happy card. I sense you will not be sorry to move on to a new week with a different brief...lol. x
