Beautiful BackgroundsPosted: February 3, 2013
The new Penny Black catalog has so many lovely background stamps. The card above features one of my favourites, Glory of Modesty. To create this card I stamped the background stamp in black, embossed in black powder then sponged three different pink/apricot tones over the embossing. I cut an oval for my sentiment and sponged in the same tones before mounting the panel on Coral Reef Mix & Match cardstock.
Sorry it has been so quiet on Bits & Pieces this week. A combination of the expected and the unexpected has kept me from stamping and blogging. I was the organizer of a Girl’s Night Out fundraiser for my daughter’s violin ensemble last night which definitely took a large chunk of my time. Several girls including my younger daughter performed solos, I assisted a talented friend of mine in preparing delicious finger foods and another friend displayed and took orders for Silpada jewellery. The night, which sold out, was great fun; the girls played beautifully and were lovely waitresses and, from what I heard the guests had an enjoyable time.
This week I hope to have more cards to share featuring stamps from the new Penny Black catalog. To inspire you Penny Black is running a promotion called Take Flight Twenty on their blog for the next twenty days introducing dozens of new stamps and fabulous projects by the design team members.
