Featured Artist Week: Joanne Schempp - Card by Ali

This week we are focusing on the beautiful artwork of Joanne Schempp. I love her fabulous fantasy images and for my creation this week I chose to work with the Sisters digi stamp.
I just love this image of two mermaid sisters sitting together... it reminds me a little of my sister and I, one with curly hair and one with straight. :)
I colour the image using my Promarkers in pretty shades of pink and orange with some touches of blue for contrast. I cut it out using a decorative oval die before filling in the background with my Prismacolor pencils:
I also added some delicate "bubbles" to the background using a pearl-coloured Perlen Pen:
I layered the die-cut image over a die-cut scalloped oval with paper-pierced edging and teamed it with pretty blue paper which I had run through a cloud patterned embossing folder:
I layered pink dotty rubbon across the card before attaching the layered image using foam pads and finished things off with lots of pretty flowers and a few pearl gemstones:
You can find this and Joanne's other gorgeous stamps in both red rubber and digi format at the Sweet Pea Stamps store.


  1. Alis, this is gorgeous. The image is coloured in beautifully. The flowers certainly add to the card. Will need to keep a look-out for the cloud embossing folder and the Perlen Pen. Can you let me know where you got these from, pretty please. Best wishes, Kym xxx

  2. The Perlen Pens are by Viva Decor, Kym, and come in a variety of colours. The cloud embossing folder is from Stampin' Up!. :)
