Digital Stamps

I've just begun to explore the world of digital stamps. One of my favourite rubber stamp artists is Mo Manning. I was first introduced to her wonderfully whimsical artwork at the CreativFestival in Toronto in 2009. At that time, I purchased several of her incredibly cute stamps at the Stamping Bella booth. Thanks to Emily, I embarked on a whole new way of colouring my stamped images with Prismacolor Premier pencils and blending with odourless mineral spirits and a paper stump. I'm continuing to refine this technique to this day and am having just soooo much fun!

Simon's Challenge this week is to create a card inspired by a Nursery Rhyme or Fairy Tale. Here's my contribution to the competition. I used a digital stamp which I purchased from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop. You really must check out the wonderful images that are available from this site! (A little comment here - please make sure you purchase Mo's images. She puts a lot of heart and soul into her artwork and deserves to be paid for her work.) I coloured this image with Prismacolor Premier pencils and blended the colour with odourless mineral spirits. I really love this technique! I added a few little details with Viva Decor Paper Pens. Don't you think she's cute?

Until next time,


  1. Oh this is adorable and so beautiful too.

  2. Oh how I love this card, so fitting to the nursery rhyme, too cute for words... thanks for joining us at Simon Says Challenge blog

  3. Carol ... gorgeous work. I will check out the Mo Manning site for sure! I recognize the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Spice Cake paper -- love the colours you've worked with.


I'd love to hear from you! Please leave me a comment.
