Penny Black For the Family Challenge!! THANK YOU Card!! =)

Pin It

for family challenge
I wanted to share a FUN card I made this weekend for the Penny Black Inc. For Family Challenge!! If you are NEW to them or have NEVER Visited their Blog I hope you'll go and check out ALL of the AMAZING Inspiration!!
I was one of the LUCKY winners on their Blog during the New Release Week and I received 5 of the New Released Stamps!! I have been wanting to create with them and this gave me the PERFECT Excuse!! I created this card for Sister!! She LOVES to garden so this card will make her SMILE!!
I started off by covering my Background Stamp with Gelato in Aqua Dolce!!
I then sprayed it with water and I LOVE the FUN watercolored look it gave to my card!!
I just wanted to jump up and down with EXCITMENT when I saw it!! Isn't it so AMAZING when your idea turns out even better than you had imagined it!!??  =) Plus it kinda gives a FUN texture to the background!! Just makes me HAPPY!! =)
Next I stamped the Flower image ontop some text printed paper and fussy cut them out!! I stamped two of the Larger Flower and one of the Smaller Flower!! I wanted to layer them so I cut a couple petal rows off all around one of the Large Flowers and the Smaller Flower so they would fit inside one another!! I colored them in with my Faber-Castell Aquarelle Water Color Pencils in (126, 119)and then I used a water color Brush to blend them!! I stamped the leaves two of the Larger Leaf images and one of the Smaller Leaf images!! I added Water Color (167) to the veins of the leaves and used a Water Color Brush to blend it!! I stamped the Thank You Sentiment and that finished my card!!

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you'll check out the Penny Black Circle Flicker Gallery for all of the AMAZING Inspiration shared for this Challenge!! Have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
