PENNY BLACK - Sunny Days 4055K

I love Penny Black stamps and when I first started buying that brand, I focused on all the beautiful flower stamps they had. I didn't do much with whimsical designs but eventually fell in love with the little Hedgehogs. This is the latest one I ordered and can order for you as well if you like it. I made two cards with it the other day.

The first one here was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with my Copic markers. The design didn't seem to work well with any of my Spellbinders dies, so I just trimmed the piece and then mounted it on a slightly larger layer of Apple Green CS from Lasting Impressions. The card base is card stock from Penny Black and was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.
The second card here was colored the same and the layer trimmed but I didn't mount it onto a second layer. The two Apple Green papers are from Lasting Impressions.

Personally I think I like the first one the best. I wasn't really thrilled with the layout on this one.
If anyone wants some of the Apple Green paper, it has been discontinued but I still have some left I could sell in the variety packs. I can also get the Penny Black stamps for you when I place an order again.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #6

The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them. Thank...
