Penny Black SImplicity Sister Part I :)

Hey there,

my facebook friends already know this, but I haven't shared the great new over here, yet.

I feel honored that I was asked by Penny Black to join their Simplicity Sisters for the next 6 months - woot woot!

You can find amazing CAS inspiration on the Simplicity Blog - I am surrounded by ah-mah-zing designers - and so honored! There's inspiration twice a week - and every designer will also post fabulous projects on their own blogs (just like I am doing now)

This is my card for today:

I just love White Mbossing with watercolor and Penny Black has some really gorgeous flower-stamps, so this is - in my opinion - a match made in heaven!

  • stamp the Flower and the leaves with Versamark ink and white emboss them.
  • press your distress ink pad onto an acrylic block and use a paintbrush with water to color the images
  • stamp the string and bow with black ink onto your card base and add the sentiment
  • take a pencil to give some shape and dimension to your petals and leaves
  • use dimensional adhesive to adhere the images to your card front
  • add some more interest with pearls 

Stamps: Penny Black (Petal Party, friendship, embellishments)
Ink: Versamark, Versafine, Distress Ink (mustard seed, spiced marmelade, peeled paint, mowed lawn
Cardstock: Exacompta card file
Embellishments: stash

Curling the petals a little up gives much more dimension and interest to the card and makes it look very different from a version with a flat flower. You should for sure try this out!

Have a nice week-end (and thanks for staying tuned even if I am not a super-blogger anymore at this time.... It is so much appreciated that you still visit this place ;) )
