Enjoy your day! Red Roses


P1070396Welcome back

I hope you’ve had a great weekend.

I’m back to share my card using Penny Black ‘The Look of Love’ which is a wood block stamp.

Using Distress Ink to colour the image, I stamped it 3 times across a small piece of cardstock.  I smoothed the colour with water and a brush, before adding some black and red ink splatters.

The bottom section features card embossed with EF – ‘In Stitches’ from Craft Concepts. After embossing, the 2 sections were joined and added to black card with a narrow border, and the card front.

A thin strip of card was coloured with the red Distress Ink, added to a black strip, before covering the join. The sentiment  from Penny Black ‘Heartfelt Thanks’ was then stamped in the bottom corner.

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.
