When I began stamping over 15 years ago, I started buying Penny Black stamps. I have quite a collection which continues to grow, as they are one of my favorite companies. I recently discovered the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Blog HERE & hope to regularly participate. This week the challenge is to CASE this gorgeous card by Helen:
I love everything about this card, including the colors, water-colored image & dry embossing. I'd never embossed 2 sheets at the same time--it works great!--& in this case it means the images automatically are lined up. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder. Yes, I know daffodils are generally yellow, but one of the things I love about this craft is that you can use any colors you want for any image. This is Penny Black O March! colored with Distress Markers concord grape & sage green. When it was dry I over-stamped without spritzing & added some Distress Stickles in the same color. The torn edges are swiped with PTI Vintage Cream & the card & twill are the same. I just added the pearls in one corner & mounted the flower piece with foam tape to finish it off.
Thanks for taking time to stop by. I always appreciate your comments.
