I am popping in with a different sort of cards than my usual floral cards.
Sometimes it's just nice to let "stamps take us to places.....", you know what I mean? 😊
Penny Black - Cling Mounted Rubber Stamps - In Paris
(all supplies I used are listed at the end of the post)
This stamp may not be high on everyone's list, but you can interpret however you like it.
As I noticed that in this stamp, there are people holding the umbrellas.
I wanted to create a post-rain scene. In that sense, it may still look gloomy yet it is still full of promise. Well, you get the idea.
I started out with stamping the main image in Black Soot and Vintage Photo (Distress Oxide). I then clear-embossed the image and added the background colors : one color at a time.
I still wanted the background a bit dark and so, I applied a tiny bit of Black Soot. This is a great way to practice your ink-blending.
This iconic image reminds me of that time when we posed in front of the Eiffel Tower with the kids in 2007!! Here is a trip down the memory lane...
I adore these cling stamps/dies and can play with them all day....
