I was delighted when the lovely Jenyfur from Penny Black asked me to Guest Design on their blog for the next two weeks. Of course I said yes!
So here is the first installment of my Penny Black projects. Keeping to my clean and simple style roots. I chose a lovely stem image which reminds me of cow parsley here in the UK. I highlighted the delicate little flowers with glitter and then paired the cow parsley with a friendship sentiment and mounted it all on a piece of rich green from a set of Penny Black cardstock trios.
I made a little gift card holder to match, masking off part of the sentiment and tying it all together with some ribbon and twine.
The cow parsley image is so fine and delicate and stamps beautifully and the glittery blooms are so sweet.
I added a piece of polka dot paper to the inside of the gift card holder to tie in the red colour.
This next card is my favourite of the bunch. I stamped the flower image with Versamark on to vellum and white embossed it before colouring it with distress inks. This is my first time trying this technique and I loved how rich and vibrant the colours are.
I loosely attached the flower to a white panel double mounted onto more of that lovely rich and vibrant green cardstock trio. Wrapped some twine and added a little sentiment tag.
I’d like to thank both Jenyfur and Penny Black for the opportunity to Guest Design on the Penny Black Blog. Watch out for my post next week with more Penny Black projects.
