Love is…

Love is...

This card features stamps from two new Penny Black sets. The flourishy florals are from the slapstick cling set, Longing, and the 1 Corinthians text is from the transparent set, Love Chapter. I posted a little sneak peak this morning of a card made with the Longing stamps; you can see the whole card on the Penny Black blog.

I began the text panel for this card by stamping the floral stamp in Versamark and the text in Versafine Olympia Green then embossing both in clear e.p. I then sponged in greens and yellows and matted in Olive Grove Mix & Match paper. I overlapped the other floral stamp from the Longing set on the card base in three greens and sponged the corner.


Stamps: Love ChapterLonging(PB)
Inks: Memento New Sprout, Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves, Versafine Olympia Green, Versamark (Tsukineko)

  6. The technique for the verse is brilliant! Stamping both image and text in two different inks then clear embossing really works well. The base card stamping is just so beautiful and creates a lovely swirl of movement! So tranquil! Gorgeous card! TFS!
