Hello there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
Today I'm Guest Designing for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
It's an honor and a pleasure to be designing for them this month!
This challenge is always Anything Goes with an option.
This month's option is Use Your Favorite Colors.
I have so many favorite colors depending on the season.
This orchid/light blue combination is a favorite.
My mother had a brooch with these colors that I always loved.
I've stamped this gorgeous flower on Mixed Media paper with
Archival Shadow Gray ink and colored with Arteza Twimarkers and a waterbrush.
The wash was done with Tumbled Glass re-inker on a wet background
and the sentiment was stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink.
I used this curved edge die by Penny Black to emboss the card front.
Embossing with a die is the challenge at CAS Mix Up this month.
It's one of my favorite techniques!
I hope you'll check out the awesome inspiration cards at both these
challenges then join in.

Congrats on the guest designer spot, Bonnie!! And what a beautiful card!! Just love the delicate flower and the embossed curved detail between the flower and sentiment - great design!!
Oh Bonnie, this is so pretty! LOve that dotted impression! Your favorite color was perfect for this sweet bloom.
Congratulations on your Guest Designer position - they'll be so happy with your sweet cards - maybe they'll make it a permanent one!
Congrats, Bonnie, on guest designing for Penny Black...she is one of my faves. The Orchid Opulence paper really pops that sweet flower and gentle wash background. Such a pleasing card!
Congrats on guest designing for Penny Black. Love your beautiful card with the pretty color combo. The embossed curved border is a great accent. TFS
An honour well deserved dear Bonnie. This beautifully watercoloured bloom is refreshing and the dry embossing compliments it superbly. This colour combo of secondary colours really work wonderfully together. Love the dramatic allure. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up! xx
This is so bright and lovely, Bonnie. The blue wash is so soft and just blends right in for sky. What a beautiful curved edge you used and embossed. Great card.
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL card Bonnie and CONGRATS on your GD spot over at Penny Black...well deserved!! Hugs. :0) P.S. Did you happen to see Jennifer McGuire's post on Gel Plate printing where rather than using acrylic paints she used DOX inks? Very pretty and I have LOTS of DOX inks...my new Gel Plate and brayer will be here tomorrow thanks to amazon and I can't wait to get started! :0)
Love the movement of the embossed die and what a beautiful card Bonnie. Great memories for you too x. Many congratulations on guesting x
Gorgeous card with gorgeous colours, Bonnie! Love this combination. The embossed curve is so beautiful. Congrats on being GD at PB Saturday this month! xx
Love those colours and your watercolouring, that embossed border is a lovely finishing touch xx
Beautiful, and so easy to see why you love the colors! The embossed die adds a bit of flow
Outstanding work on this stamp, Bonnie! I may have to not follow you because I immediately went out and bought this one! You did such a fabulous job on it that your blossom literally glows. Love the soft background too- one thing I'm unsuccessful doing. Every time I see your work I end up shopping -Again!
Fantastic watercolouring of that pretty flower and background Bonnie, and I love the curved die embossed into the card amd the super sentioment to finish. x
Sorry...congratulations on being a GD this time over at Penny Black too Bonnie. x
Congratulations on being GD at PB Saturday Challenge this month, Bonnie! Your watercoloring is gorgeous and I love the color combo too! The embossed curved stitched line is so pretty and placed in the perfect spot.
Congrats on your guest spot, Bonnie! It would be hard to pick a favorite color, but I'd probably end up with yellow. Love the orchid on this pretty flower. SU Orchid Opulence was always a favorite color and I still use it fairly often. Very nice CAS design with the curve and the one rounded corner. Style and elegance!
congratulations Bonnie on your GD spot so deserved :) You chose such beautiful colours and I love that swish of a die cut.
How wonderful to have you join us as GD, Bonnie! What a beautiful card! I love this image and your wonderful colouring! A great design and so pretty! Take care!! :)
They are lucky to have you Bonnie as you are a very talented lady and you always showcase Penny Black stamps so well! I love this card you have made, the colors are so beautiful! I love the sky, just so beautiful. The flower is equally beautiful, and your watercoloring looks amazing. Looks like you are enjoying the Arteza Twinmarkers and looks like they have nice vibrant colors. I love that die you embossed it, it is cool look, kinda' like a zipper! Hugs, Brenda
Beautiful card Bonnie - love that gorgeous flower!
Thanks so much for guest designing for us this month!
Congratulations on GD. This is one of my favourite colour combos for flowers too. Your card is so pretty and your watercoloring is beautiful.
Beautiful! I love the wavy line across the top it really makes this unique!
Your colours are gorgeous Bonnie and I'm intrigued by that pretty curved die! Vicky x
My favorite stamps are Penny Black and you are the one that turned me on to them with your beautifully painted water colored flower.
Full time designer or guest designer, you are among the best
Oh My, Gorgeous stamped and watercolored flowers with such beautiful shades of Violet and Orchid for your flowers and framing. Love your die embossed curved line separating the beautiful sentiment and flowers. Adding a soft watercolor background is a beautiful finishing touch. Loving ALL your beautiful die embossed cards for our CAS Mix Up Challenge, Bonnie.
TFS my friend. Love and Hugs...Nancy
so beautiful....lovely card
I love everything about this card, Bonnie. The soft blue background, the lavender border that brings out the color of the flowers, the movement of the embossing. Magnificent!
Revisiting this one! Just got my stamp and hope to do it justice as you did. Love your colors too!
Congratulations on your GD spot! Your card is beautiful, the soft background really makes that flower pop and I love the added embossed detail xx
WOW! A wonderful card, with a soft watercolor background and this amazing flower. Your die perfectly filled the free space on the card
