More florals



Good morning Peeps, a really quick post with my mid month Penny Black card.

Again I have used the beautiful Passionate image coloured inked with Distress Markers and spritzed with water before stamping onto a piece of card which I machine stitched around the edge. A Penny Black sentiment and finito, as I said a really quick post.

The challenge runs until 27th April so still plenty of time to join in to be in with a chance of winning one of the fab prizes.

Hope you have a good week.

Might be quick Brenda but it is stunning. Very whimsical and floaty looking. You have definitely revived my interest in the Penny Black stamps.

Bellissima card Brenda, sembraun quadro e starebbe molto bene anche appesa al muro con una cornice in tinta!

Beautiful stamping and stitching! Love the colors too!

Donna Ellis said...

oh oh oh oh! I wish my Penny Black would come out that pretty, B! Maybe I simply need to practice more? Do you use regular white card since you are painting the stamp instead of the paper? Or do you use blending paper or watercolour paper? This is precious with the stitching around it. Great card, my friend! hugs, de

Ellibelle said...

Just beautiful Brenda, these brushstroke stamps are so quick to use, I am so glad I finally got some in my collection too , although I didn't get this particular one. Beautiful stitching around the image too, love that it's in green.

There is something about floral cards. I think we should all have a stock of floral cards ready for the occasion that calls for a card in a hurry. You do these so well Brenda. Judy x

nnalorac said...

So many posts Ive missed of your gorgeous creations Brenda, they are all beautifully made, love the colours and the image on this one and a bit of stitching has been on the cards for a long time here, even have a wee sewing machine to hand which I hate to admit has never stitched a hole! Must dust down and give it a go soon. Carol xx
