Mix it Up February

Hi Everyone,

I am playing in the Ellen Hudson Mix it up challenge  - this time its Penny Black. Finally an incentive to pull out my neglected PB supplies.


I settled for the pretty sentiment and paired it up with Ellen Hudson stamps. Heat embossed the flowers in white and then stamped again with distress inks, after I misted the stamp with water. Used water color paper. Did some partial sponging and added water drops. In the end I also added Washi tape.

Wowww!!! diese Karte sieht wieder mal wildverwegen aus.
Warum, kann ich nicht sagen, auf mich wirkt sie so.
Aber ich mag sie trotzdem - oder gerade deshalb???
Liebe Grüße

Der Einsatz von Washi tape ist wirklich cool hier! Ich vergesse es meistens... Tolle Karte!

Holy moley. This is absolutley lovely. Your double stamping with the embossing is so effective...especially with the ink blending and water drops. Wow! And those little touches of washi just enhance the splendor so well.

I think this is in my top three Cornelia cards! Love the double-stamping of the flowers, and the sponged, border and spritzing, and the card would have been lovely at that point. But the torn washi makes it look so arty. Love it!

Wow, Cornelia, love the blue background for your preetty flowers...and those pops-of-colour washi tape placements are incredibly striking! Fan-tas-tic!

I love the shadow you gave the flowers by stamping them in the background color, Cornelia.
