Penny Black Stamps "Owl Be Yours 40-045" Card

I tend not to use "cutesy" style stamps in my crafting these days, but while tidying my stamps came across this Penny Black Stamp that I thought would be ideal for an engagement or anniversary card.

I stamped the Penny Black "Owl Be Yours 40-045"  cling stamp in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

To colour the image, I used an assortment of colours of Derwent Inktense pencils, applied with a paint brush.

I used Ranger Archival Ink "Forget-Me-Not" blue ink (which handily matched the Derwent Inktense Blue) through the Funky Fossil Designs "Micro Dots" stencil around the edge of the heart.

Finally, using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink, I stamped the "Congratulations" sentiment, which is part of the Simon Says "Tiny Words" stamp set.  I added a few touches of white and gold gel pen, along with some dots of white "Ranger Enamel Accents".


  1. I have few female relatives so rarely make cute cards,love your owls and layout,perfect for an anniversary or engagement as you say

    1. Thanks so much. Definitely not something I could do regularly x

  2. This is a lovely PB stamp with the cute owls so prettily coloured Sam, and love the blue stencilled micro dots added in the shape of a heart which looks great and the small font 'congratulations finishes it so well. x
