Garden DelightPosted: April 14, 2021
It’s a doubly exciting day today! Not only have a I teamed up with the Foiled Fox for a giveaway, I am also sharing the first of my posts featuring new Penny Black stamps.
The new release is called ‘Delight’ and the stamp on this card is called ‘delight’! And I am delighted to tell you more about this garden card.
You can probably tell that I painted the background first; it’s a smoosh, spritz, swipe background! I smooshed broken china, worn lipstick and wild honey distress inks on my glass mat, spritzed water on the inks and the hot pressed watercolour paper then swiped the paper through the inks. I tipped and tilted the panel to get the colours to mix and move then let it dry standing on its edge.
Once it was totally dry I put the panel in a stamp positioner to do all the stamping and painting. I stamped the base of the stamp with rustic wilderness, the larger flowers with worn lipstick and the rest of the stamp with antique linen. Using the glass mat as a palette I smooshed the distress inks already mentioned so I could add water and pick up ink with a paintbrush. To create white petals on the daisies I used a white gel pen then added little white dots here and there around the panel.
The ‘delight’ stamp is fairly large so this card ended up being 6¼”x4½”. I finished the card with a sentiment from the new PB ‘thinking of you’ set stamped in twilight versafine clair ink. To enter the giveaway The Foiled Fox is hosting let me know in the comments what is on your crafty wishlist right now. I am wondering about trying some gouache paints so that is top of my list. What are you hoping and saving for?
