The fun continues on the Penny Black blog today with more new dies on display. I have another new die featured on today’s card; ‘Joyous Season’ will be available along with the remainder of the new release on August 25th.
I made my little scene with the Tannenbaum stamp again, inking with both green and blue stains and painting the sky and snowdrifts with lighter blue stains. My watercolour paper was splattered with masking fluid before I began and then rubbed off when all the ink was dry. Because I was mounting the panel on a dark blue card base I decided to die cut the sentiment straight out of the panel. It is barely noticeable in the photo but I went over the revealed blue letters with a clear wink of stella marker to give them a little sparkle.

Oh So Pretty Heather!!!! Like the look of your sentiment, and can imagine the Wink of Stella added! Thank you for sharing!!!
Oh what a beautiful card! I just love your idea of cutting out the sentiment and letting the background show through! The trees are just gorgeous! TFS!
Some more beautiful trees Heather and what a great idea to cut the sentiment out of the top layer as the base card is dark. x
Oh, Heather, this is gorgeous, and I really love your snowy scenes!! So amazing and lifelike, including the shadows of the trees in the snow. And I do love how you’ve used the die to cut out and inlay. Stunning card, sweet friend! Always a delight to visit! Hugs!
Stunning! Love those shadows!
Gorgeous use of this Tannebaum tree. Love it! TFS
This may just be a little too true-to-life for me in August. 😉 It is a beautiful winter scene, though.
Gorgeous! I love how the sentiment is cut into the scene!
Wow Heather another masterpiece I so love what you do with watercolors❤️
