Penny Black 'For goodness sake' card number two

Hello and welcome to my little world :-)  I haven't had much time for cardmaking this week because my DD was off school all week with a chest cold - which I have now as well :-(   Still, us Mums just keep going, don't we?!

I made another DT card for Fat Cat's Card Corner using the gorgeous Penny Black 'For Goodness Sake' slapstick stamp that they sent me in my DT Kit.  Check out the first card I made with this set here.   I have just checked their website and they are out-of-stock until June but you could email them and ask if they might be able to reserve one for you.

I stamped the image onto Watercolour paper and watercoloured with my acrylic paints.  I added some fine crystal glitter to the flower on the girl's hat and poncho, and on the 3 dots on her shoe, as well as the bunny's tulip and heart.

The large flower was diecut with the Marianne Design Creatables flower die that was part of my kit - there are 2 sizes of flowers in the set (plus 1 leaf die).  Once I diecut the flower, I ran it thru my Cuttlebug using the Textile embossing folder just to add some texture to the designer paper.  The flower is up on a 2mm mount (dimensional).

For the sentiment, I diecut lavender cardstock with my Cuttlebug and Spellbinder Scalloped Heart Nestabilities die then punched the white cardstock with my old Carl CP-2 Heart punch (which I have had forever).  The tiny heart in the centre of the panel is a leftover punchie from using my EK Success Arrows Border punch - I added some Crystal glitter to the heart too.

The bottom panel has been punched with a Martha Stewart Pinking Scallop edge punch - I seriously love this punch - it's so pretty.  I ran the panel thru my Cuttlebug using the 'oldie-but-a-goodie' Swiss Dots embossing folder then attached the ribbon.  The bow itself was made with my Bow Easy, then I sewed on a gold heart charm before I glued the bow onto the card.

I think you could use this card for lots of different occasions: birthday, friendship, thank you etc.

I'm popping this card in this week's Splitcoaststampers "Ways to use it" Challenge WT272 of "Paint".  Of course, I used paints for watercolouring.

Thanks again for visiting and have a great weekend - hopefully back in a few days with another card.
