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.
