Friday the 13th never looked so beautiful!



Today is the day Penny Black introduces it's newest release - Nature's Art 2018.   I am excited to share several of the new dies available today in the Penny Black Store on my card today.



I cut a "Scrolls Half Edger" from vellum and made a stencil.  Then I inked a section directly on to my card face using sponges. After the pink and orange ink were laid down I lay my stencil over the top and "pounced some additional color to bring out my stencil (which doesn't actually show up very well in my picture).   Next I cut a panel from the "Wavy Stitch Edges" trimmed top and bottom and then attached it flat on the card face.

I took a small piece of white card stock and sponged orange and pink in the same manner as I did the card face.  From that piece of paper I cut a "Flowing Butterflies" die and trimmed the extra butterflies. I cut a second butterfly from the same die and glued the two together only in the butterfly body section so that the wings could be loose for added dimension.

Finally I selected the "Happy Birthday" sentiment and manipulated the shape of the stamp using my MISTI so that the shape of the sentiment followed the flow of the stitched edges die.

My design was inspired by this weeks Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  : )





All the supplies I used are from Penny Black and can be found at the links under each product photo.

51-418 Wavy Stitch Edges
