Penny Black Blossoms

It's been so long since my last post, that I can't think of a fun intro. So I'll just say Happy New Year! I hope 2018 is a kind and exciting year to you all!

I am sharing a card I made last week when I was attempting to get back into crafting after the silly season. Actually I made 2 versions and this is the first...

Sadly I had a request for sympathy and get well cards and I realised I need to replenish my stocks as well, so you may see me posting a few of these in the next few months.

This is a beautiful stamp from Penny Black called 'Spring Blossoms'. I used Zig Markers, colouring directly on to the stamp, spritzing with water and the stamping. I then used a wet brush to add some more detail.  I think the sentiment is from Altenew and the dies are from STAMPlorations and Memory Box.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:-
