Penny Black

Mr.& Mrs.!

Hello everyone,

A quick post today sharing a anniversary card using Penny Black products.

I needed a card to give a young couple celebrating their 2nd anniversary. I have used this birds and cage image from Penny Black’s Woodland Friends stamp set which I white heat embossed on watercolour cardstock. I then coloured the image with Zig Clean Brush watercolour pens. Love how the colouring turned out. But there was a lot of white space around. To highlight the focal image, I die cut an oval using oval die and several from scrap cardstock. I stacked glued them together with the coloured focal image oval die cut on top of the stack. I then trimmed the negative panel by quarter of an in lengthwise. I tied the gold thread toward the bottom of the panel and adhered this panel to the yellow card front. The stacked oval was inlaid in place. Love the dimension the stacked oval gives without having to use foam adhesives.

To start with, I only wanted to white heat emboss the sentiment on the back cardstock strip and adhered as shown. But then I had a light bulb moment and stamped the Mr. & Mrs. next to the watercoloured image splitting the sentiment with “&” inside the cage. I was pretty pleased with it 🙂 The sentiment is from You and Me stamp set from Penny Black,

I then added some 6mm and 4mm Pretty Pink Posh Onyx sequins to tie in the black from the sentiment strip together. Finally brush some shimmer on the flowers and birds using Sakura clear shimmer pen. and added glossy accent to the centre of the flowers and centre of the cage where I stamped the “&”.

As always I have listed all the products, I have used on my card below for you.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
