A Collage of Love

Today’s new release spotlighted on the Penny Black Blog “here” is the gorgeous collage “Sent With Love”.

The shape of this card was inspired by the outline of the cling stamp. 

Once the image had been stamped on white cardstock with Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder, the outline of the stamp was traced and trimmed. 

Watercolors created from Memento inks were used to color the image while highlights around the design were added with a sponge dauber and Teal Zeal, Pistachio and Peanut Brittle Memento inks.

Additional postage stamp elements were stamped separately, trimmed and added as dimensional elements.  To complement the raised stamps, the letters were also elevated.  For a more colorful combination than the original letters stamped in black from the first impression, a second set was stamped in Lilac Posies Memento.

The Fuchsia Fantasies cardstock base shaded with Lilac Posies Memento and Pink Petunia VersaMagic was stamped with the border from Lace Delight in black.  White accents from a gel pen were added to soften the design.

I will be back tomorrow with the last special release from the Penny Black 2012 Summer Catalog – A Flight ofThread!

Have a great day,
