Penny Black - Special Day


Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing a card made with the beautiful Flower Flourish die from Penny Black.  

The Flower Flourish is die-cut from Hot Press Watercolour paper.  Distress inks were used to watercolour the die-cut, just one colour of ink for the flowers, adding two layers so that the petals have colour variation.  Two shades of green ink were used for the stems and leaves, with the lighter green also diluted with water and splattered in the background.  The sentiment is stamped in the same colour as the flowers.  Very quick and easy CAS card using this gorgeous die!

Here's a close-up ...
