Penny Black Stamps "Winter Wander 40-356" Card

Well it is grim outside.  I woke to hear the rain lashing down, so I've made a bright and cheerful card.

For the vibrant background colouring, I have blended a selection of Lavinia Element inks.  These are the inks that I used, in the order I used them in from the bottom of the card:  

  • Sundance
  • Sahara
  • Russet Orange
  • Confetti
  • Emperor Red
  • Merlot
  • Mulberry
  • Dark Denim
  • Graphite
I wafted the heat gun over the surface to ensure it was dry before the I used Versafine Clair 'Nocturne" black ink to stamp the Penny Black "Winter Wander 40-356" stamp, using my stamping platform, which allowed me to re-ink the stamp to get full black coverage of ink.

Finally, I mounted the image on to a piece of black card and then on to a bright yellow card blank.


  1. Exquisite background for the scenic stamped image,love your choice of colours

  2. I absolutely love this Sam, just so bright and a great contrast to the black inked trees...a beautiful card! x
