Gentle Breeze Tags

Gentle Breeze tags Heather Telford

The new Penny Black release, Sunshine and Smiles, is now available. Jill Foster has been sharing beautiful projects on the PB blog all week. My card today features the new stamp, Gentle Breeze. I inked the stamp with distress stains and markers, spritzed it with pearl-ex spray then stamped on watercolour paper. I did this a couple of times on a large panel and added some splatter here and there with a paint brush. When the panel was finished I couldn’t decide on the orientation or whether to add a sentiment, a die-cut or a mat; I tried several things without satisfaction. Finally I tried a curved edge cut which ended up looking no good at all but left me with a strange shaped panel from which I managed to cut two tags. I added a little texture stamping, a sentiment and ended up with a CAS card. Speaking of CAS cards make sure you check out Penny Black’s second blog, Simplicity at its best; there is all kinds of cleverness shared over there. And, before I end off, don’t forget there is the ‘Blossom’ challenge in progress at One Layer Simplicity.
