Penny Black brush stroke stamped card

Hello friends

I always wonder what other stampers grab when they have to make a quick card. My saving grace is always a brush stroke stamp - I usually use them together with Kaleidacolor ink pads, but today I grabbed what was on my desk and at hand....you know how it goes - this way ur scraps also gets used up ;-)

This card is made up with bits of off cuts and 4 different versa color cubes which are great if you are wanting to add a few colors directly to one stamp they are small, have vibrant colors and easy to manage.

I used two shades of green for the leaves ( a light green and a darker to add shadow and depth) and the same with the flower. I used yellow and some orange applied directly from the cube to the stamp.

I had just spoiled myself with an embossing folder and of course I had to use it...LOL.... some stickles, a few pearls and a bow to finish. Oh yes as a bonus I stamped the envelope as well using 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation stamped images - I kinda like how it turned out!

Spending tomoro morning in a class with Belinda Basson from Bella's Scrapping Space. She is a whizz with Tim Holtz - so I am sure ots going to be lots of fun. I promise I will post pics as soon as my project is done....

Have a great weekend whatever you are planning to do.... I know I am going to be in inky heaven...LOL

Till next time....
