Amazing Grace



Hello....

I had originally wanted to make this card with the bookmark as part of the card front....well, that went out the window when I discovered my sentiment was too large ...Poopitz!
So I ended up with a card AND a bookmark.
I am still entering this into the Sparkle and Shine challenge...don't hold it against me. :)


This is such a gorgeous stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs. Admitting here this is my first product from them, but after checking out their store, I now have a long wish list.

The foliage stamp is by Penny Black. I stamped it onto watercolor paper using Memento markers, then softened the edges with a paintbrush and water.
Edges were inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye and Vintage Photo inks.

THIS is the kind of Penny Black that I LOVE! There's nothing else like it in the stamp world. I miss seeing these types of stamps released... Oh, you've worked it so beautifully! Thanks so much for sharing your tips on how to achieve this look. I just love it and when paired with the sentiment, it is truly a perfect card!

Such a gorgeous creation! The colors are serene and beautiful. Love the idea of a bookmark. I better not start looking over at ODB, or I suspect I will also have a looooong wish list!
