Art Impressions Pand-tastic!

Today I am sharing a set of clean and simple cards using one stamp set: Art Impressions Pand-tastic stamp set. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color them. I have really enjoyed using my Zig Markers lately, and they were a perfect coloring medium for these adorable pandas.


I stamped all the images with Versafine Claire Nocturne ink onto Canson XL watercolor paper. I colored the pandas with the following Zigs:

  • White Fur: 91 Light Gray
  • Black Fur: 10 Black, 95 Dark Gray, 91 Light Gray
  • Cheeks: 28 Pale Pink
  • Paws and Tongues: 230 Pale Rose

I started with the lightest areas first for each card front. I drew a thick Light Gray line, then blended it out with a #4 watercolor brush and clean water.


I used Black to draw a line where the darkest shadows are on the black fur,  then Dark Gray to blend it out a little bit, and did the same again with Light Gray. I used my watercolor brush and clean water to blend to the lightest shade.

I used bright colors on the hats for added fun for this first card.


I used a mask on the front panda for this next card so I could have two images together.


My last card I kept very simple, the sentiment says enough. (LOVE!)


I love how this set of cards turned out. I hope I have given you ideas to make clean and simple cards from a stamp set in your collection. Thanks for stopping by!
