Today I have a colourful card showcasing some Penny Black products. I started by stamping the hexagon stamp from the Penny Black Textures stamp set repeatedly down a piece onto watercolour paper. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Next was the fun part – I went to town with a rainbow of Distress Ink colours, a paintbrush and some water.

I did some partial stamping to create the sentiment. The Happy is from the Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set and the Birthday is from the Good Day stamp set.
