Welcome and hello.
Today, I am playing with some new stamps from Penny Black..always fun to play with new toys.
I love to watercolour so my first thought when I saw this Effulgent flower stamp was to give it a look of watercolour. I did that by placing the flower in my Misti, coloured it with my Tombow markers, sprayed with water and stamped. I repeated that process with a darker shade of blue to give the flower more interest.
To help balance out my card front, I stamped the Unfolding flower in the bottom left corner by using the same process as mentioned above.
Next, I sponged the edges with Distress ink and added some stenciling using drywall tape.
* Drywall tape is always sitting on my desk and I love using it to give more depth and interest to my backgrounds or just to perk up the look of a card. *
I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Wishes sentiment set using my Misti again and Memento ink.
Finally, I added some Nuvo drops; sorry it is hard to see those in the photo.
