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.
Stamps: Penny Black Butterfly Trio stamp set
Card: Canson watercolour paper, Black card stock, Vellum
Ink: Versamark watermark ink
Other Supplies: Kuretake Gansai Watercolours paints, Paintbrush, Masking tape, Hero Arts embossing powder – White, Heat gun, Cuttlebug, Penny Black Creative die sets – Hello Christmas and Numbers

Spring has certainly sprung here in Asutralia and I am loving it! To celebrate I have a Jane’s Doodles tag to share with you today which is just bursting with all things Spring. To see the post over on the JD Blog go here.
All the stamps are from the Spring stamp set. The background was created with my Gansai Tambi watercolours onto some watercolour paper. The images were coloured with Copics and then I fussy cut them out.

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’m pleased to report that I have survived report writing and school holidays have started! Yay! It has been such a massive term, so it is an awesome feeling to be able to relax and have some time to make some cards. Bring it on!
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.
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.
