New stamps!

I'm soooo excited to announce that the new Penny Black Christmas and Halloween catalogs are available for viewing  HERE and HERE.  Here's a card using one of my *new* favorite stamps---
For today's card I used Penny Black 4271 Winter Ledge:
After stamping with VersaFine Onyx Black, I inked my background using Distress Ink.  I added subtle shading to the sun using a Prismacolor Pencil.  I also used a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Pitt Artist Pen in black to darken some of the branches.  Finally, I used a white Prismacolor Pencil to shade the snow and trace around the darkest branches.

For more ideas and a look at the new release stamps, be sure to visit the Penny Black blog, beginning Thursday, 8/2.

Thanks so much for visiting, my friends.  See you soon with more cards and new stamps! :)
