Softly - Penny Black

Hey there,

Today, I am sharing three cards made with one stamp - Softly from Penny Black. I just love this slap stick stamp. It is oversized and you can stamp multiple times depending on how dense or scattered you want your branches.

 I have used just one technique for all the cards i.e. making background with distress inks, stamped and embossed the image and add more colours to flowers and leaves to make them stand out.

For first card, I have used Simonsays -Khaki  ink to  stamp the images multiple times & coloured it with distress inks. I just love the soft feel of this card.Sentiment is PTI.


For the second one, I created background with various distress inks, did partial stamping & embossed with silver embossing powder & coloured it with same shades of inks as background to get that tone on tone effect. Sentiment is from PTI.

For the last card, I just swoosh down (is that right word...?)  the distress ink pad from the top of a white CS  creating that amazing textured background. I stamped and embossed in white & coloured with Tombow markers. Sentiment is again  PTI.

Hope you will enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them...:)!
Bye for now ..... keep crafting!
