Lots of Love


Today, I am showing you a card I made the other day using a new stamp set from Penny Black called 
All ABloom.  It was a really fun set to play with and this is what I did.

I began by stamping the flowers with Memento black ink then got out my Brushos to watercolour the leaves.  I love that the Brushos give you colour variations easily.  
I stamped the sentiment and then using some watered down Brushos left on my palette, I splattered some ink on the background.  I cut a frame and mounted it over the image with pop dots.

Lots of great new releases from Penny Black for Valentine's Day.  Hope you get a chance to check them all out.

  3. This is so gorgeous! I love the blue-green hues you used on it.

  4. So beautiful in design and color. Looks like it should hang on a wall to be enjoyed again and again.

  5. So pretty Karen. Love the way you've framed this. When I first looked at it, it looked like a framed piece of art. Beautiful design. Curious about the stitched inset in your frame. Did you emboss that onto the frame, or is it a die-cut that comes like that?? Either way, it's very cool! xx

  6. WOW, this is a framed work of art for sure, Karen, so beautiful!!!

  7. Gorgeous card, the leaves are beautiful :) Love the die cut frame.
