Hello 40!

simplicity sister

Hello! I’m back with another card using some Penny Black products. I needed a 40th card for a dear friend of mine and so this card was born.

The background was created with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours paints. The butterfly is the largest butterfly from the Penny Black Butterfly Trio set and was white heat embossed onto vellum. The sentiment was created using two creative die sets, Numbers and Hello Christmas.

Poppy Love – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello! I’m back with another card for Penny Black. I really enjoyed making this card – it was a labour of love, as it took me hours, but I love the final result. Water colouring is such a forgiving technique to play with and it was fun to get out my Gansai Tambi watercolours again.

I white heat embossed the Penny Black Poppy Gems stamp onto some watercolour paper then went to town water colouring.The sentiment is from the Penny Black For You die set.

Watercolour Medallion – Penny Black

simplicity sister

I’m back with another Penny Black card using some products from their latest release.

I usually create a background like this one with distress inks. But this time I used Kuretake watercolours instead. What I love about these paints is that they are so creamy. I started by wetting some water colour paper with plain water and a paint brush. I then randomly painted on some teals and blues and let the water do the blending. I dried this with my heat tool, before putting some of the watercolours onto my craft mat and adding water to make little pools of colour. I then dabbed the paper into the paint to create the splotches. I did this several times until I was happy with the result.

Hello Penny Black | Marion Vagg

Once the panel was completely dry, I die cut it with the Penny Black Medallion Creative die. I removed some of the die cut pieces and then adhered the rest onto a card base with some liquid glue. The Hello die cut is from the Penny Black Hello Christmas word set. I really love how it turned out.
