Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing well!
Today I have a couple of “LOVE-ly” cards to share with you! My cards are featuring sweet critter stamps from Bunches of Love release by Penny Black.
The first card is showing the flying hedgie from Love Everywhere set (30-798).
I stamped the hedgehog in the airplane in a black pigment ink on Canson XL watercolor paper and colored the image with Zig brush markers. After coloring was done I cut it using the Coordinating Cut Out (51-699) and set it aside.
I watercolored a Mixed Media panel in blue and teal using Gansai Tambi watercolor and dabbed the watercolor off with a paper towel to create the clouds. After the panel was dry I cut it using the Zig-Zag Stackers (51-714) and stamped the sentiment from Sending some Love set (30-894) in black.
I foam mounted the panel on a white cardbase and added the hedgehog also using some foam tape to it. I finished off the card with a few clear sequins.
Next card is featuring the bear from the Fill My Heart set (30-889).
I stamped the bear with LOVE balloons in black on Canson XL watercolor paper and colored it using Karin brush markers. I cut the panel into a rectangle using a kraft knife with some balloons peeking out from the edge. For some added interest I drew faux stitch lines in gray.
I cut an apple green cardstock with a Zig-Zag Stackers (51-714) die and foam mounted it on a white cardbase. I then added the colored panel to it slightly tilted. I finished off the card by adding some white highlights to the image using a white gel pen.
It’s always so therapeutic for me to watercolor the sweet Penny Black critters ! Hope you got some inspiration from my cards today!
Wishing you a crafty day!
