Happy Wednesday! Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
Our theme this week is Christmas, and my teamies and I are playing with Penny Black products. I have always been partial to their beautiful bird stamps, and so I decided to use 2 older ones for my post today, and coincidentally, both cards also use one of my favorite sentiment words, "Joy"!
My 2nd card features a collage-style wood stamp, another style of stamp that Penny Black does very well:
supplies: ivory, green, and copper glitter card stock, and a panel of patterned paper for my stash, old paper distress ink, Penny Black Song of Joy wood stamp, Zig markers to color, copper watercolor paint for hanging star, tiny gold sequin for center of star, Wplus9 Hand Lettered Holiday die, adhesive foam to pop up star
I stamped and embossed the image on ivory cardstock, then used my Zig markers to color in the greenery, bird, and berries. Next I sponged the panel with old paper distress ink before framing it in a green card stock, and mounting that onto my patterned panel. I separately stamped the star/ornament and watercolored it with a copper pearlescent paint to match the sentiment that was die-cut from copper glitter paper, and popped that above the card, adding a teensy sequin to its center for more sparkle. I chose "Joy" because the name of the stamp is "Song of Joy".
