This is one of my oldest Penny Black flower stamps which I recently removed from it’s wooden block so that I could use it in my MISTI and that has worked out so much better than I dared to hope. I may be removing more stamps from their wooden blocks lol!
I coloured my background before I added the stamping. I used my Distres re-inkers to colour a snippet white card and once dry I added little splatters of water and dried the card with my heat tool. I used Pebeo Dyna inteference paints to ink up the stamp and stamped the flower multiple times to get the beautiful shimmery look. Once I was happy with the panel I trimmed it further then mounted it onto another snippet of card that I then edged that with my chocolate coloured wax. I added a snippet of patterned paper to a card then adhered the stamped panel. I used a very old chipboard sentiment and four wooden embellishments. The wooden butterfly I painted with acrylics before attaching it and I coloured one of the wooden flowers with chocolate coloured wax but kept the other two flowers plain as I love the look of one coloured piece and two natural wood pieces. I used a snippet of ribbon to add a little embellishing to the top left hand side and several sequins and I was finished.
A great way to use up very old embellishments and some snippets of card and patterned paper. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
