I have so many favorite Penny Black stamps, most of them are, but somehow this collage type stamp - Gathering Together - does pop into my mind often when it's about using favorite things. I just love how all of the elements are arranged on this single stamp (minus the sentiment).
I stamped and heat embossed the image onto Bristol Vellum paper using my usual Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and clear embossing powder. Distress inks and a Zig Detailer brush were used to color the image. I used Peacock Feathers and Tea Dye distress inks. I flicked some Peacock Feathers ink onto the background for some splatter.
The harlequin pattern paper was included in a package of pattern papers I found at a thrift store several months ago. I really would be the last person to need any more pattern papers, but there were some great basic prints in this package and I couldn't resist :-)
The small sentiment is part of the set Butterfly Garden, also by Penny Black. It's also been heat embossed then stapled to the card and I tied some natural jute twine onto the staple to tie a bow. It's hard to see, but glitter was applied to the butterflies using a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.
Embellishments: Natural Jute Twine // Wink of Stella Clear Glitter
Tools: Zig Detailer Brush // Heat Tool // Handheld Stapler
Papers: Bristol Vellum // 110lb Heavyweight Cardstock // Pattern Paper Unknown Maker
Other: Clear Embossing Powder
