Penny Black and More - April Challenge

It's the first Sunday of the month and that means there is a new theme at Penny Black and More challenge. It's an easy one so everyone can join in - Anything Goes. Please remember we are a stamping challenge meaning the focal point does need to be hand stamped but you may use any brand of stamps. This month we have prizes by Penny Black and Swedish House crafts! Hope to see you playing along!

To make my card I masked the edges of my card front using washi tape then inked with Tea Dye distress ink. Removed the washi tape then transfered the image panel onto a stamp platform

This stamp Gentle Whisper  has been inked with Distress markers, colored directly onto the rubber. The small beehive stamp I used on the background is from an older Stampin Up set and the bee is a stamp by Lavinia. I decided to make a Thank You card as I never seem to have those ready when needed. The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Happy Together.

  11. Hi Ellie, I love what you have done with the lovely orchid stamp and the intensity of colour, I bought this not long ago along with the matching die, unfortunately the die is a totally different size (something PB seemed surprised about!!) but I did ink it up and need to use it more.
