First DancePosted: February 6, 2014
When I first received the lily stamp from Penny Black I was not aware that it was named “First Dance”. The name does seem perfect when you look at it swaying in the breeze. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I used a watercolour technique to make this card! I inked the stamp with markers and stamped it on dry watercolour paper. I then spritzed sparingly with water and added more colour to petals and leaves with a paintbrush. I added little dots with a marker then re-stamped the stamen in brown.
The inspiration from the “Happy Everything” collection continues on the PB blog today with Jill’s gorgeous creations.
