Penny Black Color Challenge

This week the Penny Black designers are contributing their inspiration for the Color Combo Challenge.


I inked up some of my new Colorful Christmas stamps and created this card to send love during the holidays.

Sending Love At Christmas

They have 5 great color combinations for the challenge.  This is the one I selected to work with.


Fairy Wishes was stamped twice so individual components could be created for the body and wings.  These were then assembled with a bit of foam tape to create extra dimension.

Iridescent Wings

After coloring with Copic markers, interference gold watercolor was added to the wings for a shimmery effect.

A reversed banner die cut tag was used for the sentiment and a dash of Madison Designer Paper was added for a festive splash.
