Penny Black

Tuesday with Tara {take 384} A Paper Hug

Happy Tuesday!  Today I’m sharing a quick & easy mini slimline card inspired by the Paper Hug sentiment stamp by Picket Fence stamps!  I’ve paired the sentiment with this sweet snowman die cut by Penny Black, called Snowman Joy.   I die cut him out of watercolor card stock and added some subtle touches of color with watercolor pencils.

I was playing around with some watercolor paints recently, and painted this ombre panel on a scrap of watercolor card stock.  It was fun to play around with blending and ended up being a perfect background for my snowman!  I layered it simply on teal cardstock (it was literally a scrap that already had a torn edge).  Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink ended up being a beautiful match to my pieces, so the sentiment was stamped on white with it.  It’s simple & whimsical and I hope it brings a smile your way!

Inky hugs,

Tara

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.
