We have a new sponsor, Penny Black, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Bouquet

 A randomly selected participant in the Bouquet challenge will have their choice of a Penny Black gift certificate, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I LOVE the challenge graphics. Beautiful bouquet of flowers. Such vibrant colours. Perfect graphics to use with Penny Black floral stamps.And there are a variety of floral stamps to choose from Penny Black. I love their outline stamps because I can colour them 🙂

I heart you card1

I have used Penny Black’s Fresh stamp set on my card.

I stamped the flowers with Memento Black Ink and copic coloured them. I picked the colours from the challenge graphics. LOVE the vibrant colours of pinks and purples. I then die cut a rectangle panel out of the coloured floral image to be used as focal point.

For the background, I did the smooshing technique on regular cardstock. I used Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean distress inks instead of watercolour on a piece of acetate sheet, then sprayed with water and smooshed it on the card front on the top left and bottom right. Love the subtle, layered colour wash effect this technique gives.

Once the card front is dry, I mounted my flower panel using foam adhesives to give some dimension. Sentiment is from I Heart You stamp set also from Penny Black. I simply stamped it on a strip of white cardstock, trimmed the fish tail banner and adhered it on the card front. Finally, some gorgeous Sparkly Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to bring everything together. I am pretty happy with how my card turned out. Hope you do too 🙂
