Hello friends!! Did you see all the new dies that Penny Black debuted last week??? If you didn't you need to check out the PB blog because they are absolutely yummy!!! And while you are checking out the new dies you can check out all the fun projects the PB design team has made using products from the Twinery! The design team will be posting projects all week and if you leave a comment you have a chance to win a yummy prize provided by the Twinery!! Today I have a little card that I made using one of the new dies... a super fun one called "dots". I paired this die up with the current sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and the Dynamic Duo's color combo of grey and your choice. I went with yellow.
I started out my card by trying a new technique that I saw on Splitcoaststampers. The technique involved using masking or painters tape to create a inked background. We don't have any painters or masking tape, but I do have lots of washi tape and it worked perfectly! Simply tear off a piece of washi tape, ink up the sticky side, apply to the card stock, burnish a bit and then pull off the tape. What is left behind is a cool sort of grungy looking border. I die cut basic grey card stock using the "dots" die and adhered it to the card front using tiny pieces of foam dimensionals. The Penny Black background stamp "Paisly Outline" was inked up with yellow ink, stamped on a scrap piece of white paper and a butterfly punched out. A grey button was added to the center of the butterfly and then the butterfly was attached to the die cut piece. Finished things off with the sentiment from the Penny Black set "foliage fancy" in black ink.
Thanks for stopping by...
