International Woman's Day - A Penny Black Flower for all the ladies!

Happy hump day and International Woman's Day! My card today is for all the ladies out there! All women should design a life they love!


I have been loving flowers lately and I have always gravitated to Penny Black flowers. Their new release is certainly not an exception! This slapstick cling stamp is called A Moment in Time.  I used my Distress Inks in Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry for this one.

I used the Misti to be able to stamp the image multiple times, I began by stamping it with Abandoned Coral and used my water brush to fill-in the color. After it dried, I put some Picked Raspberry on an acrylic block and painted in some pink in the shadow areas.  I then re-stamped it completely in the Abandoned Coral to get the detailed lines back on the image.  I then determined where the centre would be and used my dark brown Tombow marker by colouring directly on the spot on the stamp and then with my water brush I spread the color.

For the stem I used the same process only with Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress Inks.  My sentiment is from the Boss Babe stamp set by My Favorite Things the pink in is Hollyhock by Simon Says Stamp and the black is Versafine Onyx Black.

Have an awesome International Woman's Day!
Thanks for taking the time!
