Spotlight on Sweet Spring – Penny Black 4

Happy Easter to you and your loved ones. I’m back today with my fourth card for Penny Black, using products from their latest catalogue called Sweet Spring. For today’s card and tag, I’ve used a rubber stamp called Blissful Blooms.

Blissful Blooms

I create the card and the tag (Tagged Creative die), I placed the Blissful Bloom stamp onto a stamping positioning tool. I then used both Distress markers and Tombow markers to colour directly onto the rubber stamp. Once coloured, I spritzed the stamp with some water from a spray bottle and then stamped it onto the watercolour paper. I immediately heat set it with a heat tool. I love the water coloured effect that this technique creates.

To intensify the shading on the leaves and stems, I used some Prismacolor pencils. I placed some Nuvo Crystal drops onto the centres of the flowers.

The sentiment comes from the Happy Critters stamp set.

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.
