Whiff of joy meets sugar nellie

My mojo seems to be on holiday this week and I had abit of a struggle on my hands today getting this card to gel. I say this card but it is really these cards as there are 3 cards that are the same.......or are they.
I am joining in with the Whiff-of-joy challenge blog, Heather has made a lovely sketch for us all to follow. I used the stump from the WOJ spring kit and teamed it up with my sugar nellie stamp. I made some of the backing papers using the rollagraphs I got from imaginations-crafts and highlighted them with the mica powders that are exclusive to them. I also coloured the flowers with the mica powders.

Okay if you are still with me at this point on to the fact that these cards all look the same but are not. I have used different mediums to colour the images with the first closeup shows the image coloured with my inkadink inks that are from imagination-crafts and they did say they where new. I don't think they are on the web site yet. The second image is coloured with my prisma pencils which I haven't used for so long and thought it would be nice to dust them off. The last image is coloured with my copic pens which are fast to colour with. Would love to know which is your favourite its just interesting to see the difference in the finish with the different mediums.
Materials used:
Stamps: Whiff of joy Stump
Sugar Nellie A good book
Imagination crafts: Rollagraph and mica powders
Coloured with inkadinks, prismas and copic
Papers: Basic gray

All gorgeous, nice to compare the 3 mediums, I use differnent but never really get to compare them together so this is a great example. Although I'm guilty of using my Copics most of the time, I have to say I like the Prisma out of these 3, not that the others are just as nice, you've got some great shading on it, thats all!

I love all three of these cards. Each one is beautiful in its own right. I really think for me the Prisma colouring has the best definition.

I must get some of these stamps when funds permit.

Hi Jakki, cards are beautiful, I think all the mediums used are fantastic, I most impressed with the copics though as I have such difficulty using them to colour so I'll go for that one. Hugs DawnM.x

How clever of you to use three different media to color! The colors are nearly identical and all beautiful. I'm a big fan of Copics but your Prismacolor is my favorite. The shading is so smooth. Great job!

Beth said...

Ooh, what a great idea to combine the stamps! Gorgeous cards! xx

These are all wonderfully colored. I am a Prisma fan myself, as I seem to be Copic challenged and cannot seem to get them to look right.
Love how you combined the Sugar Nellie image with the WOJ tree stump!
