Cards - Penny Black Stamps

Hello Everyone

I hope you all had a good weekend and a good Monday!

In December I treated myself to some Penny Black stamps.  A Christmas present from Denise to Denise! LOL

Anyways, I started playing with them and here are 2 results. 

I did a lot of fussy cutting and added dimension.

One can really do so much with these pretty stamps. On this card I used different patterned papers and cardstock for the colouring of the leaves and flowers.  I also used some BoBunny pearlescents to add highlights.

Here is the second card and second stamp.

On this stamp I used watercolours to colour the flowers and leaves.

Again, I fussy cut the flowers and leaves and then layered them up.

I still have another 2 stamps from the same range and are still going to play with those.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a super day!
