Day 2 of 12 Days of Christmas – Penny Black

We are celebrating the 12 days of Christmas at Scrap’n Stamp and this is for Day 2 featuring Penny Black stamps.  Let’s get started, today I am using a Penny Black stamp called Holly Berry, along with Zig Clean Color Pens. Normally I would colour the front panel with the bright colours and the background with the dark, but for today I decided to switch it around.

On Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper and in my original MISTI (MOST INCREDIBLE STAMPING TOOL INVENTED, incase you haven’t heard ) I stamped the image using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne. Keeping the stamp in place I turned the paper piece upside down and stamped again, stamping once with the card on top, and again with it removed. Then I began to watercolour using the Zig Real Brush markers 030 Blue and 035 Deep Blue for the top piece, going from dark to light.

On the bottom piece of Fabriano Hot Press watercolour paper I painted using 041 Light Green, and 022 Carmine Red. Once I completed the watercolouring I put the two pieces aside to dry.

I like to complete my cards by stamping inside.  For the inside of the card I stamped the image slightly higher than on the front of the card and watercoloured again using the 030 Blue, and 035 Deep Blue below the image. I then stamped the sentiment slightly above the Holly.

Using a damp paint brush,  I pulled the red colour from the berries, adding water to bring it out. I then added splatters using the  Zig Real Brush marker colours  022 Carmine Red and 268 Deep Red.

Next, I glued the two pieces of watercolour together, then adhered them to my Neenah card base, attaching the piece on the inside as well.

I really enjoy experimenting with water colour and  like how this loose watercolour turned out, and I hope you like it as well. Thank you for joining me today.

Red Mittens

I have named this card Red Mittens. Kia here with you today to share Red Mittens, which is an older stamp by Penny Black. I am using another older stamp, also by Penny Black called Berry Bramble.

I decided for this card that I would use Tombow markers for my colour, using only 4 markers, which I have linked to below. Several years back I cut this set to separate the mittens, as I wanted to use them differently. When perusing Facebook today I saw a card by Michelin Jourdain, and loved how she hung the mittens, hence I did my version.

                                   When I finished colouring the berries and the mittens I painted on Tumbled Glass oxide ink using a damp paint brush. I then fussy cut the left mitten, styled it and arranged on the card. In my Misti I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Blue Belle, with the joy done using VersaFine Clair Ink in Tulip.

I attached the piece to a Gina K Design Red Velvet card base, and added a bunch of splatters using Winsor Newton Gouache.

It was fun giving some love to my older stamps. I like to bring them out every now and then, and show them off. I do hope you have enjoyed this trip down memory lane.

Hanging Out

Hello all! Are you ready for Halloween?

Today I am sharing a Halloween card with you that has me smiling. As most of you know, I love colour, and this card is all about colour.

Using Neenah cardstock and distress Oxide inks along with a couple of stencils I first added the moon with the Lawn Fawn stencil and distress oxide inks in Hickory Smoke and Tumbled Glass for the clouds.

I then added colours across the front of the panel in rainbow colours. In my mini Misti I stamped all the pieces I wanted to use, again on Neenah cardstock, and proceeded to colour using Copic markers, aand cut them out.

The Copic colours I used are as follows:

R29, R27, RV29; YR07, YR68, YR07; Y13, Y15, Y18; YG07, YG09, YG06; B14, B12, B02; V09, V17, BV02; RV06, RV04, RV02; Branches E37, E35, E33 AND YG07, YG09; Spider C3, C5, C7; Pumpkin YR18, YR09.

I added water splatters to the rainbow inks drying with a paper towel. I then arranged the critters in colour order along the front of the card using foam squares.

To finish the front I stamped the sentiment using Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. Using a white gel pen I added highlights to the critters.

I also did the inside to coordinate with the front of the card. This was such a fun card to make and I hope you have enjoyed it as well. Thanks so much for visiting today. Following are Affiliate links to the store for the products I have used for this card, at no extra cost to you.
