June marks seven years since Penny Black and More started and my how those years have flown by and I am so pleased to say that many of the current Design Team have been there since the start. To celebrate we have a special prize of some really classic Penny Black stamps, you will find out more over at the challenge blog.
The new Penny Black Poetic collection are now available in the UK from Crafts U Love so I had to have a little indulgence and have used one of them called Flower Lanterns for my card this month. Using DI I 'blobbed'..........technical term...........some watery colour onto a piece of Fabriano, dried and then using distress markers direct to stamp and spritzing liberally with water before stamping the focal image. The sentiment is also PB and using the same colour DI as the background and a stencil added some pattern here and there.
It's another PB stamp for my Stamping Sensations creation, this one is called Magnolia Rhapsody and stamped using exactly the same process as my card above. The sentiment is from Visible Image sentiment and a real favourite and like the PB one above gets a regular inking. A few pearls and matted onto coordinating cardstock.
I really hope you will join us this month, as always we have some super prizes to be won.
