Penny Black – Timeless Inspiration #4
Hi! I’m back with the final instalment of my Penny Black Timeless inspiration posts. I have saved some cuteness for this last post.
I have made two cards using the Special Friends stamp set as well as the Butterfly Garden stamp set. I also used the coordinating Special Friends Cut Outs coordinating dies.
I stamped out the four critters from the set and used the coordinating dies to cut them out, along with the sentiment banner. All images were coloured with Copic markers.
To create the foliage underneath the banner, I first drew around the banner lightly in pencil, so that I could position and stamp the greenery in just the right position. I used a mixture of green pigment inks and also a pink pigment ink to stamp the leaves and flowers. I then adhered the sentiment banner with 3D mounting foam tape, and added the critters in last, directly adhering them to the card base.
This second card is exactly the same as the first, but I just changed the animals.
I think they turned out so cute! And one has already made it into the hands of my daughter’s friend for her birthday.
