Penny Black – from the Heart


Hello and welcome

My card features Penny Black – Flower Gala stamp set, which I water coloured with Distress and Tombow Pens.

To start, I drew a heart shape on my cardstock and stamped the flower slightly tilted, to fit along the left side.

After water colouring the flowers, the heart shape was water coloured with Distress Inks. Both were then covered in Wink of Stella clear glitter.

The sentiment is one of my favourites from There She Goes.

Searching my scrap box, I found a piece of designer paper which matched the heart and a strip of silver card.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
