PB&J Video Tutorial

I have lots of Christmas stamping to share with you next week, so for today's PB&J video tutorial I decided to do something a bit more springy!  Why is it that in the summer I feel like making Christmas cards and in the winter I create a card like this? :)
I had so much fun trying a new technique and doing some water coloring on this card.

PB&J Video Tutorial, ATC set

Today's PB&J video tutorial features using acrylic paints with stamps.  
Click HERE to visit the Penny Black blog and watch the video.

Each ATC (Artist Trading Card) measures 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.  They were all painted on Grunge Board, providing a nice sturdy "canvas" on which to paint.  I chose "gratitude" as my theme.
Thanks for visiting!

Merry Christmas

I just love how Penny Black collage stamps make for quick and simple cards.  This was created with 4268K Crystal Drops:
I stamped the image two times.  Next I added Distress Ink for the sky and ground (Scattered Stray, Faded Jeans, and Gathered Twigs) and colored the stars with a yellow Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pen.  This was then die cut using a Spellbinder's die.  Finally, on my second stamped image, I colored the trees with Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pens, cut them out, inked the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, and layered onto the card.  Twine and pearls add a finishing touch.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  
See you on Wednesday with a new PB&J Video Tutorial.  
Here's a little sneak peek...
