Butterfly Die

Blue butterfly

After a week of sneak peaks, Penny Black’s new Creative Dies are now available in the store. What a treat to have all these beautiful dies to which co-ordinate with some of my favourite stamps. I chose the Delicate Wings die to cut a mask out of a post-it so I could sponge a background of blue for the soft wings stamp. I sponged Versamagic chalk inks in three shades of blue then used a stamp positioning tool to add the detailed stamp in Versafine Majestic Blue. I used two post-its as masks so I could sponge a base of colour to stamp my sentiment over.

Visit the Penny Black blog for this week’s sneak peaks and links to the design teams creations using the new dies.


Stamps:  Soft Wings, Reflection (PB)
Inks: Versamagic Night Sky, Sea Breeze and Aegean Blue, Versafine Majestic Blue(Tsukineko)
Dies: Delicate Wings

    Holy Cats! My new favorite. This is stunning in its simplicity. So elegant, so you. And I’m so grateful there is yours to admire because I haven’t got the $40 or so it would cost me to make my own, even though I already have the same inks you used. I console myself, knowing I could never duplicate your fabulous sponging anyway.
