Penny Black Sweet Perfume Take II

The early morning sun was shining in as I photographed this card from last night’s midnight stamp-fest!!  Last week I received a beautiful card from a fellow Instagram-er (@myloveforpaper) which inspired me to create this!  After embossing Penny Black’s Sweet Perfume background stamp in gold onto Bristol Smooth paper, I selectively colored sections using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I began with the hot pink flowers, scribbled a little color onto them then spritzed with water.  I let them dry while I moved to another part of the panel, doing the same thing.  When the panel got too wet, I set it aside to air-dry, then returned to fill in more glorious color!

Feeling satisfied with the finished colors, I trimmed the panel down to mount onto a panel of gold metallic card stock, and that’s when the “fun” began!!  I knew I’d be using the green base card, and wanted a little contrast between the gold and green so I decided to add the white layer.  That meant I had to trim down my watercolored panel a little more.  It cut a little unevenly, perhaps because it was buckled from all my water!  So THEN I decided to use sticky fun foam to mount it onto, thinking that would flatten it out!  It did a bit, but a teeny bit of the green fun foam was showing along the sides so I cut it again!!  You don’t have to look too closely to note that all my layers are not even.  SIGH!!

Oh, and that “You”??!!  Sadly, I don’t think there are dies for Stampendous’ Big Word Thanks sets and after unsuccessfully fussy-cutting a gold-embossed YOU, instead I just embossed it onto my card front, hoping I wouldn’t ruin the whole thing!  I embossed the other sentiment onto a scrap and adhered it directly to the card.  You can see the layer of green fun foam in this photo, and I wish I’d used black or white, but…OH well!!  😀  All in all, this was a fun card to create and I love the overall look of it!
