I just love the new Penny Black Christmas stamps. I haven't posted in a while because I'm dong a lot of overtime at work but I still found time to order the new stamps. There's always time to order more stash, right?
I've been having a lot of fun playing with Penny Black's Christmas stamps but I don't have much time or daylight to photograph them. I did manage to take this pic this morning and I hope to get some more photographs taken at the weekend.
The lamp was coloured with distress inks and stamped repeatedly using the MISTI. I wiped some ink away from around the candle before stamping to give the illusion of light shining there. The candle was coloured with watercolour markers before stamping, the MISTI makes this easy. I then used Versamark on the stamp and stamped again, heat embossing with clear ink to protect the image while I used watercolours all around the image to create the lamplight.
Isn't that snowman just the cutest? I watercoloured him, adding black enamel accents for eyes and buttons and some sparkle pen on his hat and scarf, and to some of the snow shadows but sparkle just doesn't show in photographs.
Hope to be back soon with more Christmas cards because these stamps are a joy to use.
