Our theme is Summer Colors, a nice and easy one just be sure to feature stamping as your focal point of interest. This doesn't have to be a Penny Black stamp, any company will get you entered into the prize drawings as long as it is hand stamped, so no digis or die cuts.
For my summer colors I went with yellow, blue and bits of green with the Penny Black stamp Awaken.
I heat emossed the image on watercolor paper using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and Ultra Fine Clear embossing powder, then colored with Zig Clean Color markers. Splattered some inky dots onto the background with the same colors I used for coloring and heat embossed the sentiment from the clear Penny Black set Happy Wishes using the same black ink and embossing powder. I love the shade of blue card stock I used - it's an old Stampin Up color "ballet blue" (unfortunately retired) and I thought it was a perfect match for the blue watercoloring I did around the image with the blue Zig marker. Adhered to a white card base to finish off this card.

Always love blue and yellow together Ellie and this is lovely, also like the flower in that colours, it's one I've had for years wood mounted and never been happy with results so might dig it out again.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much Brenda. I didn't even realize this was one of their old wood stamp designs, so glad they offer in in cling now, as with the size of it I'm sure it's not easy to get a good impression when it's mounted to wood. (Thank goodness for stamp platforms!!)Delete
