Penny Black again!

Good morning Lovelies and a happy Sunday, it's beautiful out there today :).
Well a lovely friend of mine Barbara Daines is on this fab DT and they have a new challenge blog http://petalluchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk I haven't entered a challenge for a while so I thought "Why not" so I've made a card using my current favourite Stamp company Penny Black!
I started with watercolour card and stamped my flowers and used drawing gum to colour them in and splashed a bit about too, then I used Aquatints and lots of water to create my background, the background stamps are from Crafters Companion, I removed all my gum then coloured my flowers and leaves with the Aquatints, added a few dots using a silver glittery pen and edged with it too, I also splattered some Aquatints over it too, just for some texture, added my sentiment (can't remember who's) then just mat and layered using colour card from Papermill Direct and Linen textured white card also from there.

Thank you for visiting, have a great Sunday xx Zoe xx

Hey, I have those background stamps too! Arent they fab? This is gorgeous! I love that idea of using drawing gum to mask them. Might steal that idea! ;) Absolutely gorgeous card. xx
