Grateful For You

 I recently won a contest over on the Penny Black blog and received some wonderful goodies from Penny Black...such a FUN package to open... thank you Penny Black :)  One of the sets I received was Foliage Fancy which I just LOVE!!!  

I made this card using the solid images from the set and gelatos from Design Memory Craft (Faber Castell). I spritzed the stamp with water and used the chapstick tubes to color directing on the solid leaf images before stamping on ivory cardstock. (Some generational stamping was done as well to fill the panel). After I was finished, I used a Black Big Brush pen which I colored onto my craft mat and picked up the ink using a wet paint brush flicked onto the panel. It added some cool speckles!!! The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Oynx Black and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Lucky you, what a great set and love the abstract look you achieved with your design. I saw some of those gelatos at W-S and meant to buy them before leaving and forgot, need to remember on Sat. to look for them.

Jennie the technique you used with this set is dreamy! Wonderful water colored effect and the "splatters" make the design uber artistic!
