To the Perfect Pair!

Yesterday I received a big package of new stamp sets, dies and stencils from Penny Black. It felt like another Birthday :) With so many new goodies to play with, my mojo was at its best. I got to work with them the moment I saw them all. I LOVE the YOU & ME stamp set. Great set for making wedding and anniversary cards. With the sentiments in the stamp set, you can make serious or punny wedding and anniversary cards. I love such versatile set. Here is the You & Me stamp set.

I decided to use the pears and the pear branch images to make my card. I wanted to use them as silhouette images yet have the pear colours on my card. This is my card.

To the perfect pair card

So I decided to sponge pear colours of green and orangish red on my card panel. Then I stamped the images on the panel using Versafine Black Ink and heat embossed them using clear embossing powder.

Then I spattered some white Mr. Huey and plain water on the panel. The water reacts with the inks and gives a subtle spatter and white spatter stands out. Love spatters on any card.

I trimmed the panel and adhered on the white card base. The sentiment is simply stamped on a strip of white cardstock, trimmed and cut fish tail and adhered using foam adhesives as well.

I am in love with this stamp set. One of my favourite in the Penny Black new release.
You can see all the new release stamps, dies and stencils at Penny Black shop.
