Sometimes a stamp really needs no help at all to be the star of a card. The Penny Black stamp, Resplendent, is one such stamp. Although the whole stamp is quite large I have just used a section of it to create this pink and blue panel. Resplendent is stamped in pink and the little flourish from the Gratitude set is stamped in blue. I added both blue and pink sponging and a mat before adding the sentiment, also from the Gratitude set, to the card base.
I had a chance to play with the elaborate Paisley stamp again yesterday so check back again this week to see what I came up with.
(There are sneak peeks of new Penny Black stamps on the PB blog this week)
Here is my card for this week’s Less is More challenge to use script on a one layer card. I masked and then stamped the Letter Background stamp and the Lace Flower stamp from Penny Black as my background. I sponged in several colours and then stamped Resplendent from Penny Black as the feature image.
I didn’t set out to create this colour scheme, it just happened to fall together. It’s nice when it works like that.
