A Penny Black...

Here is a card I made this week with one of my Penny Black stamps how cute it this?? I have coloured the image with my SU markers and an aqua brush and I have slowly built up the colour waiting for the image to dry before adding some more colour. I am pleased with the finished effect and even though it takes a little longer I think that it is worth it. I have coloured the flowers in red, yellow and orange again building the colour up slowly.
I have used whisper white card to stamp the image and have mounted this on craft card and then again on mellow moss. The card blank id close to cocoa and I have inked all the edges of the panels. On the card blank I have added some shimmer to the card edges to bring out the crispness of the whisper white.
I have added a happy birthday sentiment to the bottom of the card. This card I sent to my cousin to show her what you can achieve when you make your own cards, I also sent her some bits and pieces to have a go at making her own - I will keep you posted!
I have entered this card in the penny black challenge this week as the theme was indian summer and I think the colouring I have used suits this. I hope you like the card and thanks for looking! Debbi x x x
