It's the first Sunday of a new month and that means we have a new challenge at Stamping Sensations. This month our theme is "I Love..." and you fill in the blank by showing us on your card or other crafty makes. Hope you will join us as we have 3 wonderful prizes kindly donated by Penny Black.
There are many things I love, today I am sharing that I love Penny Black stamps, Poppies and my very old French Script stamp which I do seem to use all the time (and I still have no clue what exactly the words are!!)
This gorgeous poppy (Brilliant) is from Penny Black's newest release and I just had to have it. Not that I needed another poppy stamp but they are such pretty flowers and I just love the art style of this one. It is rather large, this is an A2 sized card and I even trimmed some of the bottom off to make it fit.
The background was done with Distress inks with a circle die cut as a mask for a moon (or bright sun). Next I stamped the image onto my new Canson Montval watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx ink then colored with Zig Clean Color markers. The blossoms were stamped a second time on the same type of paper and fussy cut after coloring. I decided to add a little more color to the blossoms so I used some Faber Castell Polychromos pencils as well.
My French Script stamp is a very old background stamp from Stampin Up. I've unmounted it a long time ago as it's so much easier to use randomly on a card like I did here. I do love my wood mounted stamps and won't ever unmount most of those, but with a background stamp of this size it makes sense. The sentiment is one from another favorite set of mine, Penny Black's Snippet. A strip of dotted paper in black and white finishes off the card.
And below is a peek at our prizes. You have all month long to join us and remember you may enter up to 3 times with a different creation. As we are a stamping challenge stamping (traditional or digital) does need to be the focal point. Hope to see you there!
