Penny Black - Not So Blue Birthday

Hello friends, thanks for stopping by - I always love to know you have visited.  Today I an sharing a floral card created using one of the gorgeous Penny Black Inc. stamp sets and Chameleon Color Top Pens - not the usual colour flower but I am really loving the palette - it is so easily achieved using the Color Tops - and of course I have used Spellbinders Dies.

The card front has been cut/embossed using the Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken #5 #6 (#1 being the smallest)  and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine and popped up onto the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.

The Penny Black Incfloral applique has been stamped onto white card stock using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. and has been coloured using Chameleon Pens along with the Chameleon Color Tops - such incredible pens and the Color Tops take them to a whole new level.  

The floral applique has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors and popped up onto a Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Forty Six Etched Die using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares and then onto the card front.

The sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Vintage Elegance Becca Feeken Giving Occasions Stamp and Die Set has been stamped using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black, trimmed and a dove tail added to the right hand end.  Next it has been popped up on the right side of the card (as shown in the main photo).

A double teal bow has been adhere adhered to the bottom left of the layered flower.  Finishing with Want2Scrap bling added under the sentiment.
