Penny Black: Hello Dear - card for one of my dearest friends


Hi and welcome to my Blog  Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

I made this card for a dear friend of my mine who is going through a tough time to hopefully bring some happiness into her day and let her know that I am thinking of her.

The image is one of the more recent releases by Penny Black and I love it - but then again, I say that about all my Penny black stamps, don't I LOL?!!  Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

I stamped the image onto watercolour paper and coloured it with Faber Castell watercolour pencils.  You can't tell from the photo, but I added some Kindyglitz Crystalina to the centres of the orange flowers.  I punched a butterfly and added some tiny gemstones to the body.

I sewed the button onto the sentiment panel then popped the panel up on foam pads.  The ribbon was attached in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my trusty Bow Easy.  I didn't really want to add anything else to the card because the designer paper (a gorgeous NEW release by Kasiercraft) is rather busy.

This card fits the following Challenges:

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 152 - Anything goes
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #83 - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Jocelyn

I love this card. Your water coloring is great. I never thought about stamping on water color paper. I'm gonna have to try that.

What an adorable card! So cheerful and beautifully painted, I'm in awe that it's watercolored, I would have guessed you used Copic markers, it's so precise! What a fantastic job!!
