New Penny Black Stamps!

Have you seen the new Penny Black Valentines catalog? Today I have a card using one of the new stamps, 40-092 All You Need...



I began by stamping the heart branches using Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Neenah Tiara White Cardstock. Next, I colored over the stamped image using Faber-Castell Art Grip Colored Pencils. (HINT- keep your pencils very sharp- it makes it much easier.) The background and sentiment banner were inked with Brushed Corduroy, Old Paper, and just a touch of Wild Honey Distress Ink. The frame (Spellbinders Labels 8) was inked with Seedless Preserves and Fired Brick Distress Ink.

Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend! I'll be back next week with more new Valentines cards... can't wait to share. And now I'm off to do some last minute holiday shopping and card mailing!

LOVE IT....What a great stamp...so many options, so little time and no $, and no STAMP.
Anyway, thanks for the inspiration.

the little touches of blue shading combined with the blue gems really make this project a vivid one.
