PB and J and Inspired by...Debby

I'm THRILLED to announce that this week's featured artist is the queen of clean and simple, Debby Hughes! Debby's cards always leave me inspired to try something new. Check out this beautiful card of hers: Her card is so sophisticated! And I love that each element shines with her clean and simple style.
Here is my take:

This is also this week's PB&J card, so you know what that means..... Watch a video tutorial demonstrating the creation of this card from start to finish on the Penny Black BLOG or directly on YouTube HERE. I had fun using some new stuff in this video including CUT AND DRY NIBS (available HERE) to color the flower with my Distress Inks.


Here's a peek at what is happening on the Mementos Blog today. Pop over to see this week's in-store Make and Take cards (all products used available online as well) and to see 2 other cards using the same stamps!




Thanks for visiting today, my friends.

See you tomorrow with another GORGEOUS card by Debby!

I just got finished watching your video - it was great and I learned techniques of laying I had not thought of before. Your card is great - thanks for sharing the information.

Hugs, Karen

I think I say this every week, but OMG! This is my favorite card by a mile! I love the layered Distress Inks and the different colors you made as well as the beautifully colored flower. Every SINGLE thing about this card has me smiling--from the banners to the versamarked music notes! Love love love this...and so my wish list continues to grow for Penny Black Stamps!

Thank you so much Jill for featuring my cards on your blog this week. I LOVE your card - the layering of inks and die cuts is amazing. And I now realise I have no where near enough distress inks! I feel a shopping spell coming on!
