Sending Love

We're over halfway through the month of August (already!) and that means it's time for our midmonth post at Penny Black and More. Still plenty of time to join us if you haven't already, or maybe you'd like to enter a second or third time? Plenty of prizes are up for grabs so hope you'll get a chance to join us!
We have  a pretty easy theme this month - Feature a Creature - so lots of possibilities there.

For my card today I inked up the beautiful stamp "Winter Song" by Penny Black. It's been heat embossed on watercolor marker paper and colored using Zig Clean Color pens. The image is large, and I ended up trimming part of the top and bottom for my card. I really didn't want to add too much more to the card to keep the focus on the image, so I just added a die cut sentiment (also from Penny Black). Not sure if you can tell, but I layered the white sentiment over a black sentiment to give it a shadow. Dazzling Diamonds glitter (by Stampin Up) was sprinkled over the sentiment to make it sparkle. The watercolor panel was then layered onto ballet blue card stock (retired Stampin Up color) and a Neenah Linen white card base.

The Penny Black blog is  having a Holiday Headstart challenge on their blog and I am going to enter my card there as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
I'll be back again tomorrow with the new Allsorts challenge card.


  1. You have achieved a lovely wintery feel with your choice of soft colours and graduated skyline Ellie.

    Keep meaning to mention that following your recommendation to try Bristol card stock I did and have continued to use is as preference for some months now. It even takes inks and water nicely with no buckling.
