New Penny Black Florals

It snowed all day yesterday but spring arrived anyway in a package from Penny Black! I have a nice little stack of PB florals to share with you in the days to come and I should manage a video or two as well.

This first card features four stamps from the new Springtime release. Those of you who have been PB fans for years might notice a re-release among them. I stamped the large and small flowers from the ‘modesty’ set over foliage from the ‘sweet sprouts’ set; both sets include two large cling stamps. I used milled lavender and aged mahogany distress inks for the flowers and a mix of three distress greens for the leaves and stems. All the supplies are linked below.

The washy blended look in the petals was achieved by spritzing the stamp before stamping along with some paint brush blending afterwards. I stamped a border of script in weathered wood with the ‘letter background stamp’ and blended the same ink around the edges. I splattered water for some watermarks and a mix of the milled lavender and aged mahogany around the flowers.

The card is 6¼”x 4½” on cold pressed watercolour paper finished with a sentiment from the new ‘love big’ set. I love the snowy cards as you are aware but I am definitely excited to be stamping florals again!

    A beautiful Spring card, Heather! I love the dreamy, watery look of it! It reminds me on a Monet.

    Gorgeous flowers Heather and I love the script in the background and the way you have kept the colours quite soft with but with some beautiful contrasting tones in the leaves, and the soft watery look of course. x

    Everything lovely, light and airy. I never would have considered such delicate rose color from Aged Mahogany. I’ll be having another look at that color, and I think Milled Lavender is my least used distress color, so another look at that, too, thanks to this lovely combo..

    After seeing this it makes me want to run out and get those stamps. The water color look of the blossoms is just gorgeous as is your color combination. I also love the way you finish off your projects- always so tastefully done! Fabulous card!!
