Floral Beauty - Prisma Pencils

Although this stamp (Large Wisteria 1161S ) is one of my favorites it is also the largest I've ever found, it is an A5 size and comes from Beeswax Stamps it is what I call a challenge stamp as it is like an etching with no clear defined lines.
I stamped the image in Archival black ink directly onto the card then selected some prisma pencils, 2 green, 2 lavender blue, 1 pink & 1 darker blue. I coloured the image and used baby oil to blend the colours.
I cut out the oval for the Lady with nestabilities and added it to the card so it was encircled in the wisteria, and stamped Bloom along the bottom of the card.

Stunning card! The colouring is fantastic, I have never heard of using baby oil for blending. Does it not leave oil marks on the card? Thanks for sharing it with us and for telling us how you made it.

Hi, Jak.. I have that stamp, but have only ever used it once, as it is so awkward to use, but you've done a brilliant job with it here! You've inspired me to have another go. Thank you! :o)
