Penny black - Thinking of you


I have collected so many stamps over the time but have not used few/many of them. This is one such set. I loved it a lot so bought but couldnt use it. So i took it out n tried and off course I thought of trying water colour.

Few months back a friend of mine gifted me water colour sheets (which have colour pigment on paper) which i had not tried yet, so using those colours.

I had something in mind, so i created mask for the entire colouring piece (i.e two overlapped squares) I heat embossed the flower masked it , embossed leaves also. Coloured the flowers and leaves. Then cut the coloured piece , matted it on a black piece of paper. Heat embossed sentiment from same stamp set.

For the background i stamped same flower and leaf images repeated with SSS fog ink. Adhered a black strip of paper on one side with foam tape and on other side the matted coloured piece. Trimmed the sentiment piece and adhered it with foam tape too. Added few sequins here n there.
