Penny Black with Burlap & Zigs


My card is to remind you of the current Easter theme at Penny Black Saturday Challenge.  
I stamped the image from Penny Black delicate florals (from 2012) on a watercolor card in Encore Ultimate Metallic Honeydew & clear embossed.  Then I watercolored with green & yellow Zig markers & a water brush.  It's such a fun & easy technique I'm glad I gave in & got the 24 pack. I added a few splatters of the Honeydew ink--a color I need to use more often. Also fun to get out my burlap which hasn't been used in ages. I attached it to cardstock before cutting it with the PTI Take 3 die. The greeting is very old (over 10 years) & is stamped in VersaMagic Jumbo Java.  I finished off with 3 green Enamel Dots.  My card cases this one by Leigh Penner & I'm entering these challenges: AAA Cards, National Craft Month Celebration, CAS Mix Up, Double D, Retro Rubber & Stamplorations March theme.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  2. Very pretty Greta. The burlap looks great as the frame. I picked up a set of burlap covered cards this week and I intend to die cut with it... this has given me a few ideas. Love the flower too, A great colour combo.

  21. Hello Greta: I'm loving this card, what a fabulous idea to die cut the burlap to frame this lovely blooms. Burlap is often a neglected embellishment so I'm glad you decided to use it in this absolutely clever way.
    Love your stamped and water colored image too, the Zig markers are fabulous to water color.
    Thank you so much for including Retro Rubber in your stamping fun this week, hope to see you again in the gallery.
