Friendly Surprise

This card just makes me happy! Of course, Penny Black stamps always do! :-)


The stamp used for the main image is Penny Black's Friendly Surprise . I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow markers and a damp paint brush.

The main panel was cut out using my Spellbinders Labels One dies. Just for fun, I popped up his little feet and the bird with foam tape for dimension.

The sentiment is You Are My Sunshine from Rubber Soul. I cut the left end with a corner rounder.

The designer paper is Penny Lane Freebird by My Mind's Eye. The cardstock is Baby Blue Medium Prismatics and Classic Red Prismatics .

So...it's time to announce the winner of Friday's Dreamy Treat, for the What's Cookin' Borders & Centers and the Harmony Circle 1-5/8" stamper .

They are all cute. But my favorite would be the teacher treats. I'm always looking for something to use for teacher gifts. I would probably first use it to make a bag filled with some homemade cookies. My second favorite is the Secret Family Recipe. I think it would be cute to make an album for my family and use this. Oh, I love all of them. I love the Chocolate delights to put on a bag with a chocolate gift.
