Garden Treats

Even though the season for making our Christmas cards is upon us, summer is still here with temperatures soaring in the deep south. While we still have some warm (HOT) weather left, I wanted to post a fun summer card I made this weekend using a cute Penny Black stamp.

The main image is Penny Black's Garden Treats rubber stamp. Isn't this little fellow adorable?

I stamped it on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The image was colored using the Tombow Markers shown below. Blending was accomplished using a damp paint brush.

The sentiment is from the JustRite Stampers Because I Care cling mounted stamp set. It was framed with MFT's Sunshine Die-Namics . The red border is MFT's Little Open Scallop strip Die-Namics. All designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety paper pad.

These are the Tombow Markers used to color and shade the main image .

Thanks for stopping by today. I will be back soon with something new. Until then...
