Penny Black is playing along with the Less Is More challenge this week, so I joined my Stamp Squad sisters (Judy, Penny, Rosemary & Lin) and came up with this CAS card in Fall colors. I used Penny Black's "berry wreath" (4200K)--a stamp I was immediately drawn to the first time I saw it. I colored directly on the stamp with Distress Markers bundled sage, barn door, spiced marmalade, dried marigold & fired brick. Did you know these markers do not cross contaminate--no idea how that is possible! Anyway, after inking, I spritzed & stamped on watercolor paper. I die cut it with a Spellbinders circle, glued it to one corner & trimmed it even with the edges of the panel. After doing the same thing with what was left to the opposite panel corner, I used a smaller circle die on the 2 corners. This stamp is beautiful with Stickles added to the dots, but you then loose the watercolor effect. The sentiment stamp is also Penny Black ("moment of joy", 4303F)--one of my favorites) & I stamped it in Versafine Vintage Sepia. The panel is mounted to a kraft card & this will probably be a Thanksgiving card to one of my on-line stamping buddies. Hope I've inspired you to play along. All the details are on the LIM Blog. So glad you took time to visit my blog.
