Hello with Penny Black

I also used the Penny Black Hello Creative word die (I trimmed the long trail off the end of the word). The little butterfly is from the Penny Black Flight of Fancy butterfly die set.

The Fox is from Jane’s Doodles Hello Friend set and the sentiment is from the Doodle Flower’s 2 stamp set. I think it looks like he is sitting in front of a huge moon!

Muse #109 – It’s Your Birthday


I was determined NOT to make a blue card for the Muse Card Club this month. Looking through my last Muse cards, blue seems to be something I gravitate too! So how about a dose of yellow for this month?

It[s Your Birthday | Marion Vagg

These sweet birds (coloured with Copics) are from the Penny Black ‘Woodland Friends’ Stamp set and the sentiment is also from a Penny Black set called ‘Live it Up!’. I created the background by creating a wash with Distress inks, and once dry, flicked on some splatters with a paintbrush.

Hope that you will be able to find some time this week to join in on the fun.

For the full Muse challenge guidelines go here.


Stamps: Penn Black Woodland Friends stamp set, Penny Black Live it Up Stamp set

Card: X-Press It blending card, Canson watercolour paper

Ink: Distress Ink – Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, VersaFine – Onyx Black, Memento – Tuxedo Black

Other Supplies: Lawn Fawn Say Cheese die, Cuttlebug, Copic Markers, Washi Tape, Paintbrush, Foam dimensionals
