I was inspired to get out my Penny Black "Vases & Flowers" stamp by this sample by Ougot2: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/597368
(Hopefully that link will work.) It is a perfect stamp to do the Poppin' Pastels technique with. It didn't come out quite dark enough to suit me, so I went over parts of it with my Prismacolor pencils.
I was also inspired by Color Challenge 121 -- to use Pretty In Pink, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive, which is what I used on the cardstock. I used a few more colors than that on the image, but I think it all coordinates well with the cardstock colors I used.

I like the softer colors. Makes the vases look like glass.
I really like these Penny Black Brushstoke stamps. I just picked up 3 this week. I was coloring them with marker then stamping, now I must get out the versa mark and chalks and PLAY. TFS

Beautiful. I love the poppin' pastels technique. It was the first technique I tried when I started stamping and it is still a favorite. I read somewhere that if you only had a choice of one stamp pad, it should be a Versamark.
