Welcome back to the Fab Friday challenge over at the Fab Friday Challenge Blog! This week we have a color challenge. These colors reminded me of winter, so since I just got a bunch of new Penny Black stamps, including the one that inspired my whole OBSESSION with their stamps lately, Penny Black Snow Trails along with the new Christmas Sentiments set, I wanted to try changing up the colors again used for the layering techniques I learned from Jill Foster to these colors. Would it work?
GOJUS!!! I used Ranger Archival Pink Peony for my first layer and then layered Watering Can and Jet Black over that with touches of Violet. I used French Ultramarine with Distress Spun Sugar and Wendy Vecchi’s Make Art Violet Blendable inks for the background with my Picket Fence Life Changing Brushes.
I used the Ranger detail blending tools to create the shadows from the fence and trees. I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear EP, and I added a little of the Spun Sugar ink around the sentiment to give it a soft glow.
I added some snow with my Sakura Gelly Roll #10 pen.
I simply adhered the panel to the front of the card, and it just didn’t need anything else! I’m looking forward to playing with Penny Black Snow Trails with different color combinations!
