A Special Wish – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Today I am sharing another CAS card using some more fabulous Penny Black products.
I stamped a background pattern using some of the leaf images from the Petal Power stamp set in a teal coloured pigment ink. The red dots were made with a red Copic marker. The sentiment is from the Special Wishes stamp set which I cut out and popped up on some foam squares.

And here is mine. I am joining in on the festivities just for fun this week.

You are probably wondering where the theme ‘accentuate the negative’ is. Well when I got a little peeky at Michele’s card last week…I didn’t realise there was going to be a theme and I made my card based on her heart theme. And I am sure there is song out there somewhere called Love You…

I had a LOT of fun creating with this little guy – so much personality. I think it is my favourite JD stamp set to date!

First up I have Seamus juggling some shiny hearts. I curved the sentiment on this one.

My second card was cased from this card by Christine. I loved her card design and thought Seamus could get a very similar treatment.
