Gladsome Flowers – Penny Black

Hi friends! Over the next couple of days I have some cards to share with you made with Penny Black products from their recent Bliss release.

Today I have three cards I have made with the Gladsome stamp. This is a beautiful floral image that can be coloured with a variety of different media.

First up I have coloured these flowers with Copic markers and then cut out around the floral images and popped them up on some foam tape. The background is a wash of Salty Ocean Distress ink and some paint splattering. The sentiment is from the All Great Things Stamp set.

The next two cards are very similar, I just coloured the floral images this time with Gansai Tambi watercolour paints. Once they was dry, I added a little bit more contrast to the images with some Prismacolor pencils. I just love the texture of the watercolour paper.

  1. Sooooooo beautiful.

  2. You have really made these flowers shine Marion! Your Copic colouring is perfect, but to do watercolour versions as well, totally a treat for us!

  3. I am not one to color in stamps and shy away from buying stamps that need coloring in but I think I could do what you’ve done with this stamp (at least I hope I can and you’ve given me the inspiration to give it a try). Mine won’t look nearly as nice as your’s but I really want to give it a try. Thank you for sharing your idea and inspiring me to want to try this.

  4. These are very pretty cards. I have this stamp but have only used it once. You’ve inspired me to use it in different ways. Thanks so much.

  5. Lovely cards & coloring – thank you so much for sharing your talent
