Penny Black Inc - Today

Hello friends, thanks for calling in.  My card today has been created using a cling stamp from Penny Black Inc. - you can find it here.  I have stamped the image onto white card stock using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and coloured using Chameleon Art Products/Pens - I love the way these pens give such a great variation of colour in the one pen - especially on a background like this.

The image has been cut/embossed using the outer frame from the Card Creator Emmeline Treillage Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken and the largest insert from the Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken, using the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine – 6″ Platform.  The card front has been popped up onto the pre-cut card base, using Crafty Foam Tape.

The sentiment from the Penny Black Inc. birthday love transparent stamp set has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and cut/embossed using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics B Card Creator Etched DiesThe Die has been used as a stencil, sponged with Imagine Memento Ink in Angel Pink and a sponge dauber.

The Shapeabilities Corner Floral Etched Dies Flower Garden by Sharyn Sowell have been cut using white card stock using the flower Die and the base Flower Die has been used to cut/emboss pink card stock. - NOTE: I have slipped in a little bit of green card stock beneath the leaves.The two layers have been glued together and popped up onto the top left corner of the sentiment. 

I have added pink seam binding across the card front and added a double seam binding bow to the lower right hand corner of the sentiment.
