Finger Printings by Barbara Phelps

Here's a cardmaking technique : Finger Printings by Barbara Phelps from the United States.

A simple technique that when used rightly gives great results. Well, if you have enjoyed Barbara's other cards on the previous four pages, then I'm sure you will love these two lovely finger printed creations by her.

Finger Printed Card #1

Two winsome cards! I'm sure anyone will love receiving these two beauties.

Light lilac flowers looking so whimsical against white colour card-stock. The hand drawn green stalks and leaves complete this beautiful picture of flowers swaying in the breeze.

Layered over colour cards and background paper with the phrase 'NATURE IS THE art OF GOD'

Very well executed, Barbara!

Finger Printings by Barbara - Card #2

Barbara said that she used her fingers to create these cards. I will let her tell you in her own words.

Barbara : I am sending, Flora... two cards, which are very similar, and employ the same technique, in two separate scans. This first one's very light purple flowers; the second, pink flowers.

What's a bit different about the image on the cards is that neither floral image was created by using a rubber stamp. What I did was employ a "stamp" that has been attached to the end of my arm since I was index finger. I pressed my index finger into dye ink and then pressed the inked finger onto cardstock. I even pressed my finger into yellow dye ink to create the flowers' centers. For the stems and leaves I simply freehand drew them with a marker.

Barbara, these two handprinted (I should say 'finger-printed') cards are so lovely and I am all eager to experiment with my index finger :-)

Thank you so much for sharing this technique with us.

What do you think? You who are reading this page and viewing these two cards, what do you think? Are you like me all ready to get your index finger dirty. You know you can always go shampoo your hair after that because that's how I usually clean my fingers after a day of card-making.
