Spring

First time to do 2 posts in one day, but I did get a second card made, so here it is.  I've been wanting to try Elizabeth Allan's technique for creating your own chipboard-like element with a solid stamp here.  I used an old favorite Penny Black stamp called  Wings & inked it with Encore! Ultimate Metallic Honeydew, Teal & Purple & then gave it 3 coats of clear ep & cut it out.  I really like the glossy effect.  I mounted it with foam tape to a Spellbinders scalloped oval with the same inks pounced & clear embossed & then edged with the purple.  The Penny Black paisley outline stamp is white embossed for the background.  The greeting is by TPC Studio.  Thanks to Sue (Scrumplescrunch) I found out about the Penny Black & More challenge for March here which is to make a Spring card or project & I'm finally entering a PB Saturday Challenge here. Wishing you all a wonderful week.  Thanks for stopping by.
