Penny Black and More - July Challenge

It's the first Sunday of the month and that means it's time for a new theme at Penny Black and More challenge - Summer Colors!

I used a circle die as a mask and inked the background with Victorian VelvetSeedless Preserves and Blueprint Sketch ink. I stamped the birds, butterflies and sentiment from the Penny Black set Enjoy Life directly onto the inked background using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink.  I added the diamond stencil design with blueprint sketch distress ink and stamped the small background words (Whimsy Stamps Basic Backgrounds and Borders set - retired) using Victorian Velvet ink. Distressed the edges and adhered onto a white card base. 

Hope you can join us this month! We have some fabulous prizes to give away again, and remember you can enter up to 3 times for more chances to win!

A lovely intense background for the stamping Ellie, I can see you are liking the Versafine Clair's as well, they seem to have become my ink of choice now as they give such a crisp finish.
