Penny Black stamps

A while ago I did  little DT work for a craft magazine and they sent me some goodies as a thank you, finally I've found the time to play and wanted to share my results.

The stamps I was given were from Penny Black

I've never used their stamps before and felt a little unsure of how best to go about it, after a quick google I decided a water colour effect would be best for my first time.

I used Memento dew drop ink pads to ink up the stamps in various colours and then spritzed with water before stamping on to white card

I let them dry naturally before adding a mini sentiment to each

all that was left was to embellish them and mat and layer with some black card

I love the water colour effect that I would never be able to paint by hand

I think I will play some more with colour combinations and see what else I can create.
I really dont know what I was worried about as they turned out just fine.

Thanks for stopping by
