Penny Black Blossom Branch // Penny Black Heartfelt // Distress Markers // Scattered Straw Distress Ink // Rusty Hinge Distress Ink // Versafine Onyx Ink // Bristol Vellum Paper // Tonic Stamp Platform
You might remember a very recent card where I used this stamp (Blossom Branch by Penny Black) combined with a fox image, this was the second time I had stamped the image using the same marker coloring without re-inking the stamp. It's another reason why I love these brushstrokes stamps, I get (at least) two stamped impression from one inking. It is a little more watercolor-y than I would have preferred, but didn't really want to throw it away.
The card was really quick to make, after the stamped image was dry, I inked around the edges using Scattered Straw distress ink and a little bit of Rusty Hinge distress ink, then took a black ink pad and wiped directly over the edges to give it a darker border. Framed with stampin up's old olive card stock and Neenah linen textured paper was used as a card base. The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Heartfelt.
If you saw my post yesterday, then you know that I finally purchased a photo tent, and might be wondering why this card still shows the dark shadow on the left. It's because this card was finished and photographed before it arrived. If you have no idea what photo tent I am taking about, you can read about it here, if you like to.
