Penny Black "Delicate Florals 40-103" Birthday Card

Another early start today, but I quite like the quiet and stillness of early morning.  It allows my mind to drift without the interference of the tv, radio or the dog barking.  I had a lovely little play session making this pretty card. 

I used a Penny Black cling stamp for the image called "Delicate Florals 40-103".  I coloured the stamp with three shades of Distress Markers (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick), I spritzed the stamp with water then stamped the image on to water colour card.  I gave it a quick blast of the heat gun to dry the surface.

I used a wet paintbrush to bring some of the colour to other areas of the stamped image and then used three shades of Derwent Inktense Pencils (Spring Green, Leaf Green and Pink Flamingo), applied with a paint brush for extra depth of colour.  I gave it another blast of the heat gun then added a touch of subtle shimmer using a gold sparkle gel pen.

Finally, I used Versafine Clair "Shady Lane" green ink to stamp the sentiment, which is also by Penny Black and is part of their "Not older, Better 30-896" clear stamp set.
