Today I want to share a couple of cards featuring stamps from the Blooming 2022 Collection by Penny Black.
The first card is showcasing the Aromatic (40-825) cling stamp. This is a brushstroke cling stamp with a dainty bouquet in a vase. I thought the long vase would fit beautifully on a slimline card 🙂 !
I stamped the image on some watercolor paper using brush pens. I scribbled parts of the stamp in the colors I wanted, sprayed clear water on it and stamped it. I repeated the process until I had all the image stamped and was happy with the result.
After that I went over the image with a watercolor brush to blend the inks and to add some details. I colored the vase in gold and colored the gray shadow.
I cut the panel using two dies from the Slimline Zig-Zag (51-733) die set. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Thoughts and Prayers (30-897) set on the colored panel in black and foam mounted the panel on a white slimline cardbase. I finished off the card by adding some yellow rhinestones to the center of the large flowers.
The second card is showing the Painted (30-909) stamp set with the artist dog 🙂 !
I white heat embossed the sentiment and stamped the puppy next to the sentiment in a black pigment ink. Next I watercolored the area where the sentiment is in rainbow colors and also colored the puppy. I splattered purple and red watercolor on the panel and let it dry.
I cut the panel using the Looped Stackers (51-631) die and adhered it flat on a white cardbase. I added the looped die cut border in blue and green to the card which I found in my stash. I thought it fits to my panel !
To finish I added a few rainbow sequins to the card.
That’s it for today!
