In between all my festive cardmaking so far this month, I’ve also found time to play with some stamps and dies that Penny Black kindly sent to me from their latest Dream & Discover release.
I just couldn’t wait to ink up the Jellyfish from the beautiful Swimming By set (30-845)! First of all, I blended some distress ink using an oval mask and stamped some seaweed (from Swimming By and Starfish Wishes (30-847) sets) before removing the mask. Then I stamped the beautiful Jellyfish using a light ink. I coloured in the image using my Twinkling H2Os before stamping the image again in Distress Oxide ink. This is when I realised that my colouring was far too soft, but I couldn’t use my Twinklings again because I didn’t want the oxide ink to bleed. So I turned to my Prisma pencils instead! Finally I added some sequin bubbles and a sentiment from the Snippets set (30-283)!
For my next card, I used the beautiful Seashells set (30-843). I love these shells so much! Super easy to fussy cut and a joy to colour! I wanted to add a little something different to the background so I cut up a die cut from the Wonky Squares die (51-424) to resemble a net!
For my last card today, I used the fabulous Tropical Paradise dies (51-643) which I coloured using distress inks before adhering to a partially-blended background. The sentiment is from the Grateful Heart set (30-467).
Thanks for stopping by!
