Create your own fingerprint art cards with the blue ink pad, googly eyes and ideas included, have fun inventing designs using the wooden bicycles, flowers and birds and add colour and borders with the washi tapes.

 

Fingerprint art is a fantastic way to set your imagination free as you transform a simple 'smudge' into a robot, cat, ballerina, monster... anything you like!  Use the double sided sheet for inspiration and have fun exploring your own ideas.  And based around your own fingerprint, you'll be making fabulous personalised characters.

 

It's a good idea to practice on scrap paper first, then when you've decided on your top characters, make your own cards to say happy birthday, thank you, get well, thinking of you, miss you... cards for any occasion you like.  You can get creative with your messages too!  Or maybe you could design your own party invitations?  You can also add the googly eyes provided to give your cards an extra dimension: attach the eye to a glue dot whilst still on its backing paper, then peel and stick.  You can also have fun incorporating the wooden toppers - maybe create a bunch of fingerprint balloons to attach to the wooden bicycle, a fingerprint tree for the bird to sit in or a fingerprint bee to land on a wooden flower - you can colour the wooden shapes too using pens or pencil crayons for added effects.

 

You can use leftover ink and materials for scrapbooking or to create more cards, gift bags, wrap, tags... whatever you like!

Fingerprint Art: Blue Card Making Kit

£14.00Price
    • Fingerprints show more clearly with less ink: lightly swirl your fingertip over the surface of the ink pad (rather than pressing down) then do a test print on scrap paper to check how it comes it.
    • You can do a few prints before re-inking your finger.
    • Do all the printing you would like to do and allow the prints to dry thoroughly ( to avoid smudging), then add pen details.  If you have a lot of ink on your finger when printing it will take longer to dry to become smudge-resistant.
    • When adding pen details, less is best: a few simple lines is usually enough to transform your smudge into something recognisable without obscuring your wonderful fingerprint!
    • You can use the ideas provided for inspiration and have fun creating your own.  If you fill a sheet of scrap paper with prints you can do lots of experimenting before making your cards and wrap.
    • Make sure you push the lid tight back onto the Sharpie pen after use to prevent it drying out. 
    • Also, store pens horizontally to prevent drying.
    • Have fun!!!
