You’ve Been SpottedPosted: May 21, 2013
This week Penny Black and the design team members are taking some time to honour some stampers who make Penny Black stamps shine.
There is a wealth of creativity shared on the Penny Circle Flickr gallery and this lovely butterfly card from Helentheheffalump really caught my eye.
Helen has a Flickr gallery and a blog featuring many Penny Black stamps on beautiful cards. This card appealed to me for several reasons. The blue and black work really well with Kraft cardstock (I am always impressed by pretty Kraft cards because I have never had much success with Kraft). I also like this CAS layout especially with a little texture and twine thrown in.
With the inspiration of Helen’s butterfly in front of me I decided to give Kraft cardstock a go…
Stamps: April Showers (PB)
Inks: Versamark Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Some Kraft I found in the drawer
Also: white embossing powder, Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils, yellow and white embroidery thread
