Penny Black Blog Hop

In honor of Penny Black's newest collection, the Penny Black designers are sharing projects and inspiration with the new stamps!

take a peek

Not only are we hopping, we're giving away stamps, too!  Leave a comment on each blog, including the Penny Black blog, for a chance to win a selection of these brand new stamps.

For my blog hop project, I recycled a tin and gave it a makeover.   

Altered Tin
Penny Black's "With Flourish" frame combined with a flower from "Floral Applique" were perfect for showcasing the tin's window.  Both images were colored with Dr. Ph. Martin's HYDRUS watercolors which includes titanium white.  It is superb for adding highlights.

The base and lid of the tin were painted with Ranger Distress Paints and stamped with Penny Black favorites Letter Background and Fleur De Lys.  The "So Happy For You" banner is part of the new Sentimental set.

Here is a closer look at the new stamps used in this project:
