Penny Black Lily

Here's my favorite card from a Penny Black board that was displayed at Ink, Paper, Rubber in Overland Park, KS.  Jennifer, the store owner, created a class for the four cards that were on the board and this is one of my cards from a class this past Wednesday. 

It's amazing how many techniques that are out there and how often I forget about them.  We colored the stamp using Memento markers.  Then we spritzed the stamp with water and then stamped.  This creates a pretty watercolor affect. 

We also used Memento ink (teal zeal and new sprout) on grey card stock to create a different look. 

Another technique we used is to stamp a background with Versamark.  We then sprinkled it with sticky embossing powder.  You then heat set it and that makes the embossing powder sticky.  We sprinkled some pretty green glitter on to the sticky embossing powder and heat set it again.  The glitter is from the Recollections line from Michael's stores. 

I then added some yellow and Crystal Stickles to the flower.   Cool card and cool techiques. 

Have a great day everyone and God bless!
