I hope you are enjoying some nice weather in your part of the world.
We had snow the other day but I really hope that Spring will come and stay now.
Playing with some new stamps again from Penny Black.
As most of you know, I love my Distress inks and love playing with them to see what kind of backgrounds I can come up with. I created this one by partially inking up my long acrylic block, sprayed with water and dragged down my card front instead of just placing it there and letting the ink soak in. By doing that, I was able to leave some areas white and open to stamp over.
Next, I placed the PB Effulgent stamp inside my Misti, coloured it with Tombow markers, sprayed with water and stamped onto my heavy weight white cardstock. (I find that the cs I use is ok for this type of water stamping and hold up well.) I repeated the above process using darker shades of the orange and then some dark brown to add shadow.
I stamped the sentiment from the PB Happy Wishes sentiment set again using my Misti and then finished my card off by using my 'go to' drywall tape to stencil in some of the open areas.
Adding my card to these challenges:
