Special Friends Mean So Much!

Hello everyone!

A quick post sharing a Penny Black card using watercolouring technique. I used Penny Black’s Winged Beauty cling stamp set to make my card below.
Here is the Winged Beauty stamp set for you.

To make my card, I started with the textured side of Tim Holtz’s distress watercolour cardstock. I used distress markers to ink up the rubber stamp because I can colour the branches in brown, the berries in red and the birds in a combination of colours. After I finished colouring the images on the rubber stamp, I sprayed the stamp with water using mini mister before I stamped the image on the watercolour cardstock. I used aquabrush to soften the image to get the watercolour feel to it. Once dry, I watercoloured the background using Salty Ocean distress ink and again left the panel to dry. I came back again with a black fineliner and added some details to the images.  The sentiment from Mimi’s Love stamp set also from Penny Black is stamped using Versafine Onyx black ink.
