Today I am sharing a card I made using a Penny Black Poppy Stamp. I adore poppies and when I saw this stamp I had to have it.
I recently took a class at Scrapbook N Memories in Harrisonville, MO (this is an AMAZING store) with my mom. We learned how to do watercolor with stamps, and the class featured the Penny Black Floral stamps.
In the class we used Tombow markers, of which I don't own any. So I decided to try the same techniques I learned, but using the Tim Holtz Distress Stains with the dauber tops. I recently acquired a whole bunch of these (thank you Tuesday Morning!) so I have been looking for ways to use them.
I used my Mini Misti for this technique, which came in handy!! I originally had not intended to offset the outline once I was done, but silly me picked up the stamp. Oops. But I was still very happy with how it turned out!!
Here is the finished card!!
For this I used the following:
Bristol Smooth Cardstock
Penny Black Poppy Stamp
Tim Holtz Distress Stains in: Ground Espresso, Candied Apple, Fired Brick, Crushed Olive, and Peeled Paint. Ground Espresso Distress Ink (for the outline of the poppy and the edges of the card)
Vintage Photo Distress Ink
I am planning on doing this technique again and doing a Snap Guide for it. Stay tuned!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
