Bejeweled in Mahogany and Gold

Hello friends and welcome.

I love this Penny Black Stamp!

Did I say, I love this Penny Black Stamp?

This time I inked the flower with Aged Mahogany and Peeled Paint Distress Markers.

I had placed it on my MISTI so I added some more Mahogany to the center of the flower
and thumped some Forest Moss on the leaves and stems and stamped again.

I added some splatters with Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine
and a gold foil mat to match.

I can see why you love this stamp Bonnie...It looks amazing or should I say what you've done with it. Love the deep richness of the aged mahogany, the green sentiment and the pop of gold is perfect x Artistic and beautiful x

Bonnie, it's gorgeous, I love all the shades of green you crated for the leaves and stem and the aged mahogany for the flower is stunning.

I can see why you love this stamp too Bonnie. It's awesome and what you have done here is simply beautiful. The colours on the flowers are amazing. The gold foil at the back just makes this card pop!

Love this look, Bonnie. Using the darker aged mahoganey and greens contrasted with the gold and this wonderful free flowing stamp. A unique and different T'gving time look!

Gorgeous saturated colours, Bonnie. This stamp is so pretty ... and even prettier with this combination. Love the gold finishing details! xx

You make me want to get my Bejeweled flower out, Bonnie. I love how you used Aged Mahagony for such a rich color combo. TFS your gorgeous CAS flower design my friend. Hugs

So when can I come over for my lessons! Just WOW on the depth of color on this- something I have never achieved with Distress inks before when stamping. Love the variation in color too- like it's shaded. You made this sound so easy and yet what an incredible impact it has . Love this, Bonnie. It's spectacular and that stamp is going on my wish list! I think Penny Black will soon own my house!

Hello Bonnie: I love how you created this card, the stamp image is beautiful but you took it to a different level with the intense colors and details. Love the splatter and the fact you gave it a beautiful, delicate golden frame.
Thank you for sharing with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, we always love to see your beautiful cards in our gallery. Hope you come and play again next time.

You do make wonderful cards with PB stamps and that technique, Bonnie. I love the dark burgundy of the flowers and the gold spatters and border add an elegant touch.

Your watercolouring is so beautiful. I had my first go at these types of PB stamps and I can’t figure It out. Beautiful card.

Greta said...

Love the colors you used, Bonnie--a stunning creation! So glad you joined us at PBSC!

This card is so beautiful, Bonnie. I love how you made this flower. With the use of multiple colors, you can create the depth of the image, the flower has an extra dimension. It looks dazzling. The golden splatter so beautifully complements the picture and I regret that the picture does not show all the glare. But I can imagine it.
