Guest Designing for Penny Black and More

I am so excited to be the December Guest Designer at Penny Black and More!

Their Challenge this month is

I used the smallest butterfly from the Penny Black Butterfly Trio set.

I used the Watercolor Resist technique and stamped it with Stazon Black ink then clear embossed it.

I used a Gansai Tambi watercolor cake to color him up.  He needed a bit more shine,
so I liberally added some Wink of Stella. He's quite shimmery IRL.

The Background is a NBUS stamp, also Penny Black.

I used 2nd generation stamping to add the ghost of a flower over the script.

The background is covered with a subtly patterned vellum.

A special thanks to Brenda and the rest of the Penny Black and More team for
including me on their team this month.  And special thanks for this
challenge blog and all the inspiration your provide!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Congratulations on being guest designer! Your card is gorgeous, Bonnie in that wonderful CAS style. Love the crisp look to this. The background is well done and behind that, until I read your description I was trying to figure out if it was textured. Awesome photography to capture that!

Brenda said...

Wow! Loving this card Bonnie!! I thought that the background of the card base was embossing until I read and saw that it was vellum, it looks amazing and I bet even more so in person. Love that butterfly, so pretty the way you did it. The scripty background is awesome and I love the second generation stamping. A win win with this card! Hug, Brenda

Congratulations on you GD spot! Your card is so pretty and serene! Just what I (and maybe others) needed during this crazy time...

Pat said...

I adore that script behind the pretty blue butterfly Bonnie, and that blue flower softly stamped in the background works well. The vellum with the subtle pattern is great over the base card too.
