PENNY BLACK EMBOSSING


My next card is for Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 30 - "Embossing". I actually ended up making this card twice because silly me did not read the Challenge properly, and I forgot to add the "Embossed" element to the card! I have chosen a stamp from the Penny Black T-for Transparent Collection, called "Hugs", and this has been coloured with my WC Brushes. The image has been cut to size, and layered on blue and pink cardstock, which has also been run through a Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" Embossing Folder, and then cut with a Label nesty. The backing paper was printed from a Tinker and Co. download called "Matilda 2". The card has been finished off with a sentiment stamped from the same "Hugs" collection, some brads, gems, and ribbon from my craft stash. Thanks for stopping by, and please feel free to leave a comment, and I would love to come and visit your blog too!

Such a lovely card, Louise with solf colours and great watercolouring as always. Just browsed through your recent cards, can't believe how creatively busy you have been. Can't get back into the swing of things but I must, as I have just received a new batch of stamps from Stamp Addicts for a new TV show. Anyway, here's wishing you a very creative, healthy and happy New Year.
