New Penny Black and more


Good Afternoon everyone, hope you all had a good and crafty weekend. The weather was a bit windy here, still pretty warm and a bit of rain but not enough to keep hubby happy and the pending hay harvest is looking pretty dismal.

As usual a few shares of samples I have been making for Sir Stampalot using a selection of new stamps from Penny Black, Le Blanch and a selection of old favourite Art Impression ones.

My top card was masked then brayered with Adirkondack dye inks, a whole array of Art Impression stamps, then sponged to add definition to the hills and stream......which hubby said looked like a road ! Does it ?


New from Penny Black 4141K and oldie 2410K, TH distress inks rusty hinge and stormy sky and the flowers decoupaged with MME DP.


Another newbie slapstick from Penny Black 40-056, Magnolia fence masked to extend it and all coloured with Aquamarkers.


And finally, a set of two floral border from La Blanche. I masked the base card, stamped with Hero chalk ink cerulean and sponged the edges. The panel is stamped with versamark, embossed with detail clear and brayered with the same ink - an exception to the rule as I used a matt cardstock. The greeting is by Darkroom Door. UPDATE - I've lost the plot, I uploaded the wrong card, this one is Hero Arts elegant weeds !!.

  1. Oh my goodness lady,these are gorgeous,Love the brayering,Your use of the rusty hinge is just brilliant too! Also love the little acetate green house. Can't make my mind up about the stream/road,I'd let the recipient make up their own minds. Hope life's treating you well at the moment,Julie.x

  4. Wonderful cards Brenda, love all three. I don't think your river looks like a road especially with all the lovely reflections, always a critic LOL! The little girl peeking through the window card is so sweet, love the windows. Both flower cards are stunning! :0) xxx

  6. Hi Brenda, Such a beautiful selection of cards. They are all lovely but my fav has to be the little girl ... I love the sweet scene you have created.

    Another hot day here in Norfolk. We had a light rain shower yesterday morning but that's the only rain we have had in weeks. Not good for the agricultural farmers :-(

  10. Gorgeous cards - love the flowers in the second one. Maybe the stream is a little grey looking (or at least, not blue enough?!) but I think it's a stream for sure!

  16. Hi Brenda, lovely cards. I particularly like the sky colour in the first. If there was a white line up the middle it might just look like a road, otherwise it's a river ;) Love the last too, though I can't ever say I've heard of thistles referred to as elegant weeds. Weeds, yes, elegant, no! We've had rain to spare here in Ayr over the last few days. Hope you are keeping well. Elizabeth x

  17. All stunning Brenda! I particularly love your little scene. I managed to finish my school work, make cake and cards as well after our chat. I will have to post some cake pictures x

  18. Oh wow, wow, wow, such gorgeous work Brenda, have you got nice messy hands after all that inking xxx

  19. A lovely feast for the eyes. The first is a beauty with those hills & the rusty colouring on the trees is just making my heart sing. No road do I see but a river with the bridge reflected & gravel along the sides, plus some greenery reflected too.
    The second is my favourite with the colour combination & the flower stamp is just a beauty.
    The detail of the window scene is lovely & i really like those flowers on the front with the ric rac ribbon bordering alongside the opening.
    The final one is such a lovely example of repeat stamping & I just love the way you have reversed the colours & textures in the focal panel - it so effective.
    As I said - a real feast & such a lovely array of techniques. Thank you so much.

  42. Hi Brenda, Wow! these are all beautiful! I love the first one especially, a very beautiful scene. I definitely see it as a stream, in fact it just looks like the brook near where I live, and there is a little bridge over it as in picture. Love the one with the window too, so pretty. But they are all gorgeous!
