Happy Monday, folks! I hope yours was a great weekend — for me it went by in the wink of an eye. I do have a card to share today. When I think of Penny Black stamps I think of the cute little girls that I’m so very fond of, but believe it or not, this sultry image, called Mixed Media, is a Penny Black stamp that was sent to me by Stamper’s Dream. I love the collage-y look of it and it made for easy stamping :-)
I used Graphic 45 paper (Le Romantique) on the top part of the card, and since I didn’t have a paper with the look I wanted to match, I made my own using a large background stamp. I simply washed some Vintage Photo Distress ink over a piece of watercolor paper for a background then stamped and embossed with my Impression Obsession Cover-A-Card Thick and Thin. After dry, I embossed the panel with white embossing powder then scrubbed on some chalk ink to discolor the white embossing powder and edged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The focal panel is embossed with clear embossing powder and the flowers watercolored with Tattered Rose Distress Ink. For the sentiment I simply used rub-off letters.
