You’re Retro! (Penny Black)
Here are the last two cards from my colour practice session from the weekend (refer here for details). Once again, I have used images from the super cute set “You’re Retro!” from Penny Black. The last critter image from this set is the bike riding cat. Talk about cute – and versatile too – would be great for masculine cards. Having said that, I’ve stayed with the same colour palette for these cards as I had used for the earlier cards. I’m kinda loving these colours. The cards are very simple but I quite like them.
The first card is my favourite of the two. I love the map pattern on the orange paper. Here’s the card…
The second card features the other half of my (somewhat failed) experiment with embossing paste (this post shows the first half). To achieve the effect I simply pressed the original work using embossing paste/distress spray against a clean sheet of cardstock. It doesn’t have the texture of the original but it certainly has the appearance of having texture which is almost as fun!
Here’s the card…
Thank you for joining me on my attempt to make my colouring practices into finished cards. Tomorrow I have a couple of new cards featuring more Penny Black stamps.
