Sun KissedPosted: May 15, 2023 Filed under: Penny Black, sun kissed | Tags: Fabriano Watercolour Paper, Penny Black stamps, Ranger Distress inks 5 Comments
These breezy flowers are from the new Penny Black release. The stamp is called ‘sun kissed‘ and I have stamped it twice on this card. I used both distress markers and ink pads to ink the stamp; I know the markers are being discontinued but while I have them I will keep using them.
I inked the flowers with barn door and worn lipstick, spritzed the stamp lightly then stamped on hot pressed watercolour. Often I follow this step by blending the ink on the petals with a damp paintbrush. I decided not to do that this time as I liked the soft ‘impressionistic’ look of the uneven coverage. I inked and stamped the stems with mowed lawn then added some fossilized amber to some of the flowers.
I added fine lines and dots to each flower head with a fine black marker then added a sentiment from the PB ‘Enjoy builder set’. The builder sets include one or two large solid stamps then a range of phrases or words to stamp adjacent to the large word. Once again I decided not to add any background blending or shading. I like the simple clean look of the stem and flowers on white and it gives me a chance to get to know the stamp before combining it with other stamps or techniques.

Another beautiful PB floral and just the stamping of the different colours without mixing together with the brush also works really well, and I love the vibrant colours giving a very striking finished look Heather. x
Oh, those flowers are painted so lovely! It makes for a gorgeous birthday card, well done!
These flowers are so bright and airy! Just beautiful, Heather!
Beautiful card Heather. Those sun-kissed flowers are so pretty. I love the texture from the stamping and no blending. And your added details makes has a lot of impact. I always leave your blog with a longer list of products to buy! 🙂 Need to get that stamp. 🙂 xx
Not sure I’d ever get this fabulous result but sure do love the way this looks! What a fantastic job you did on this with looser watercoloring and incredibly beautiful colors. LOVE this!
