Another beautiful card by Heather Telford for Penny Black Stamps . . .

Love is…

by Heather Telford for Penny Black
"This card features stamps from two new Penny Black sets. The flourishy florals are from the slapstick cling set, Longing, and the 1 Corinthians text is from the transparent set, Love Chapter. I posted a little sneak peak this morning of a card made with the Longing stamps; you can see the whole card on the Penny Black blog.
I began the text panel for this card by stamping the floral stamp in Versamark and the text in Versafine Olympia Green then embossing both in clear e.p. I then sponged in greens and yellows and matted in Olive Grove Mix & Match paper. I overlapped the other floral stamp from the Longing set on the card base in three greens and sponged the corner."
Stamps: Love Chapter, Longing(PB)
Inks: Memento New Sprout, Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves, Versafine Olympia Green, Versamark (Tsukineko)

I'll sign off now and will be back on Sunday. Tomorrow is a rather full day followed by a night of entertainment at Teatro Zinzanni in Seattle with the family.
