Today I am using two of Penny Black’s new Valentine stamps to illustrate how they were used for a simple greeting card and in a mixed media home décor piece.
An elevated panel of trimmed hearts adorned with red micro-fine glitter adds a sparkling twinkle.
The same two stamps were used in this mixed media piece along with many other Penny Black favorites (listed below).
In this design, Love Blossoms are a part of the background collage created on a 3/4" x 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" wood block.
It was fun adding this corner element which added a diagonal overlay to the rectangular format.
Tip/Hint: To give the heart added dimension and fullness, Love Flourish was attached with Modeling Paste.
Be sure to take a peek at all the posts this week on the Penny Black Blog where they are featuring creative ways to use the same stamps.
Have a fabulous day,
