May Arts + Penny Black!

May Arts & Penny Black have teamed up this week! 
This has been my first experience with Penny Black & I really loved the images!
First up I've created a 4.25" square card using the Japanese Maple Leaf image on top of the Letter Background stamp. I stamped on watercolor paper & I used 1.5" silky crush in bittersweet & 1" sheer in pewter for my ribbon accent.

Next up is the Scented Message image. 
I watercolored the image with watercolor pencils & I've added a 1.25" violet silk & 5/8" textured two tone ribbon in purple/pink. I also tucked in some satin leaves!

My last creation uses the Flower Poetry image- I just love those dogwood blooms with the script. Based on my choices, apparently I love script with everything!
Another 4.25" square card- more watercolor pencil, and also watercolored with Delicata ink- the shimmer in person is gorgeous! I used 5/8" faux canvas in salmon & 5/8" pink sheer ruffle layered- I wrapped them around the card & tied it up on the side.


That's it for me today- I had a great time with the Penny Black images!
Now make sure you stop by all the blogs- there's a prize every day!!

Like your choice of stamps and your watercoloring is great . I'm alway a little leery of using big ribbons and bows but yours are really very pretty .I guess I will have to get braver .Thanks for the inspiration.
