The weather is so changeable in the UK at the moment isn't it? One minute it's raining then it's snowing, I'll be glad when Spring is finally here.
I've seen this Penny Black 'scented message' stamp used in blogland and always admired it so I finally treated myself last week. I inked it up almost immediately and have been trying out different ways to colour and use it.
For this card I used Promarkers and I do like the subtle colour of the flowers. I stamped the image onto some pattered paper for the background and then used the largest Labels one die to cut it out, I then restamped the image onto white cardstock, coloured in the flower and then fussy cut around it. To add dimension I decoupaged parts of the flower (although you can't see this very clearly in the photo)
I can't remember what papers I used for the background they have been sitting in my scraps box for a long time. The ribbon is my new favourite - Sheer wrinkle edge layered with 22mm guipure lace and dusty pink velvet ribbon.
