Eternal Joy

I am very excited about this week’s “collage” challenge theme on the Penny Black Blog.  Their fabulously intricate stamp designs allow you to create stunning cards with a single impression. 

Brilliance Pearlescent inks were randomly applied to white cardstock before the image was stamped in black. 

A larger section beyond what was needed for the main image was also inked to provide an area to stamp the small star burst and die-cut it into a circle for the sentiment embellishment. 

After trimming the design, it was sprayed with GooseBumps Clear Texture Spray for a “glass” effect.

The card based was sprayed with Pewter Sheer Shimmer Spritz and a few of the layers were edged in Delicata Golden Glitz before the elements were attached with dimensional foam.

You can view a sampling of other designs I created using Penny Black’s collage stamps here, here, here and here.

Thank you for sharing your time with me!
