Gladsome Flowers – Penny Black

Hi friends! Over the next couple of days I have some cards to share with you made with Penny Black products from their recent Bliss release.

Today I have three cards I have made with the Gladsome stamp. This is a beautiful floral image that can be coloured with a variety of different media.

First up I have coloured these flowers with Copic markers and then cut out around the floral images and popped them up on some foam tape. The background is a wash of Salty Ocean Distress ink and some paint splattering. The sentiment is from the All Great Things Stamp set.

The next two cards are very similar, I just coloured the floral images this time with Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. Once they was dry, I added a little bit more contrast to the images with some Prismacolor pencils. I just love the texture of the watercolour paper.

Metropolitan Hugs – Penny Black Sneak Peek

simplicity sister

Hello! Long time, no post!

Well it has been a long time between cards and posting and that’s because we moved house. I’ve unpacked 90% of the boxes, so most things are up and functioning again. I’ve also just finished setting up new new craft space, so I hope to get crafting very soon. It’s been over a month since I have made anything!

Anyway, it’s my turn over on the Penny Black Simplicity at its Best blog today. I made this one before the move. Here is a little peek at my card, but you will have to head to the Simplicity blog for the full reveal.

Blue Birds – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello – just a quick post to share a serene little scene using a Penny Black die called Layered Scene. This die set actually comes with two dies that can be layered, but I chose to use just one of the layers. I die cut the scene from white card stock and then used my Copic markers to selectively colour in the different areas. I did add some dimension on the birds by using some 3D mounting foam.

It is very rare that I make a card with no sentiment, but I felt this one didn’t need one.
