Penny Black Stamp

I got this Penny Black stamp at Hobby Lobby.  Actually, I got 3 different ones.  I liked this one for my daughter-in-law.  She is a beautiful woman, both inside and out.  She doesn't seem to age (I'm so jealous). 

I used Mauvy colored markers to color this stamp.  I didn't use them full strength because they color darker than I wanted.  I marked with the markers on a plastic sheet and blended the colors with an aqua brush.  This makes the colors lighter.  This helps with shading too.  I always stamp on watercolor paper.  I added a postage stamp frame and ribbon to accent the card.

I hope you have a wonderful day.  Thanks for stopping by our blog.  Hope you found some inspiration.  Peggy
