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 white heat embossed the Penny Black Poppy Gems stamp onto some watercolour paper then went to town water colouring.The sentiment is from the Penny Black For You die set.
