Happy Anniversary – Penny Black
Hello. I hope you are having a relaxed weekend. Today I have a Penny Black card to share with you. This card uses a very different colour scheme to my usual go-to-bright-and-happy-colours, but it is good to stretch oneself and try something new.
I inked up the Penny Black You + Me stamp set with Distress ink. I then stamped the image off onto a scrap piece of paper before spritzing it with some water and stamping onto my watercolour panel. I used two shades of green distress ink (Peeled Paint, Forest Moss). I hit it with my heat gun after each stamping to ensure the watercolour didn’t run. The birds were stamped with Vintage Photo distress ink. Once dry, I then cut the panel into three equal segments before mounting them into a khaki card base.
