We’re down to week #4 of Countdown to Christmas with Penny Black!
My aim is to share a new Christmas card made with Penny Black stamps each week. I used the Winter Village stamp again today, although as much as previously I concentrated on the sentiment, this time I used only the image stamp. I embossed it in white on the Soft Stone panel, masked the rectangular area around it and sponged with distress inks. When I was done, I scored around the masked area to bring out the edges. Winter Wonders was used for the sentiment, and I sprinkled some Polar White flower Soft on the foot of the houses to make snow. As I was done I thought that the balance is not quite right, and I decided to add a length of trim underneath as well. I think it really helps to ground the design.
See you again in a few hours 🙂
