Penny Black Effulgent stamp

Hi again, its my turn on the blog today.

I would like to share with you a card I made using the Penny Black Effulgent Stamp.

The stamp is different from most in that it is a solid stamp that you can use to create a watercolour effect.

I hand coloured the surface of the rubber stamp with Tombow markers. 
I selected three shades of pink and two shades of brown.

I then stamped the coloured image onto damp watercolour paper.

I'm really pleased with the effect and found I had a lot more control wetting the paper rather than the stamp.

Supplies used:

Poppy Stamps : Vintage Happy Birthday Die( own Collection)

You can pre-order all of these goodies in the store and you still have time to take advantage of the 
May savings where there is 20-25% off store wide.

Until next time

Hello and welcome.

It's Meighan here just sharing with you a card I created with some Penny Black images with a pop of colour and a lovely sentiment.

The layout is a little different, as I wanted to stamp the flowers and then stamp again on another layer and put them together again.

But it didn't sit right so I added a little bit of coloured in between them and the flowers were
coloured in with a little ink.

Here is my card:

The items used are:
Penny Black Bouquets Stamp Set*

* Please remember if you cannot see one of the items used please contact Bec.

The sentiment is from the Penny Black Happy Thoughts stamp set and has been layered on one of the beautiful diecuts from the Marianne Design Large Petra Oval collection.

Don't forget there is still time to join our May challenge and we would love you to join us.

Have a super day.
