Hi there everyone. I hope you are all doing well. This was made for some friends who I think have been married for 30 years, and I decided to use this Penny Black Stamp.
I stamped it on to a snippet of white card using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and then coloured it with my Staedtler Aqua Brush Markers using some straight from the pen and others diluted with water using my waterbrush, and then I fussy cut it out. The little ladybirds which are part of the scene were coloured and fussy cut and added separately. I had to add the feelers and legs with Black Micron Pen once mounted on to the card as I could not possibly have fussy cut round those..lol.
I found another snippet of white card and made a background using a Leonie Pujol Embossing Folder called Dotty Heart. I opened up the folder and rubbed the Festive Berries DI over the raised side, spritzed with water and pressed the piece of white card on to it. I finished by adding the image over the top and also a sentiment stamped with the Nocturne ink and heat embossed with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.
Thank you for joining me today and take care everyone.
