Penny Black Blog Hop Day 2 – Watercolor Beauty

Hi everyone! It’s Lisa here with you on this fabulously crafty Tuesday.  And we are thrilled to be Blog Hopping with Penny Black all week long and getting in the Holiday spirit early. Yay!

Here is the card that I created for the hop. I always love creating with Penny Black. My creativity tends to go a little bit crazy. 😉


I used the Sprightly (40-337) background stamp in a slightly different way. I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder and then used just parts of the stamp to create kind of a swirly look on opposing corners. I then used 3 colors of Distress Inks (Seedless Preserves, Pumice Stone and Evergreen Bough) to “watercolor” the background. The berries were colored with an Art GRIP™ Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.


You can see some of the overlap of the colors a little bit better in this photo. It’s a very loose style of watercoloring.

I used the same gold embossing powder on a piece of cardstock weight vellum to stamp the sentiment from the set called Beauty of the Season (30-254) which I wrapped around the watercolored piece. I secured it in place with my E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Adhesive.

Then I added LOTS of 3D Foam Squares (in white) to give the card front dimension. Before attaching to the card base, I wrapped a piece of Ivory seam binding ribbon around it and secured with a few DODZ™ – Small (I like to roll them up).

Now all I had to do was add it to the card base, which I kept neutral. I love how it turned out. I hope you all like it, too! 🙂
