Blissful

I've made one more attempt at a gold monochromatic card using Delicata gold ink. I have discovered that this ink, while stamping solid on large surfaces, "shrinks" after a few minutes, leaving white space behind. I have decided to embrace that feature and accept the less-than-solid look!

The background is stamped with Penny Black's large slapstick stamp "Blissful". I then stamped the image a second time and cut out one of the flowers. The flower is mounted on top of golden leaves cut with Penny Black's Creative Die "leaves".  My photography skills unfortunately have not been able to capture the brightness of the gold on this card.  It sure looked better in my head when I thought of it!!

I am still learning my way around the uploading and editing of photos on my new computer. I am sure I have been shown how to do this more than once, but I continue to do things the hard way!! 



Today is the last day to leave a comment on the Penny Black blog for a chance to win a Christmas Stocking full of Penny Black goodness! Don't miss out!

I am so glad you had the same experience on this kind of stamp. I have a 2 or 3 pieces I haven't used, but didn't quite want to discard. Now I'm going to embrace the effect, too! This is one gorgeous card, Judy! I really do "need" the leaves die--LOL!

Your card turned out wonderful despite the "shrinking" of the gold ink. It looks crackled. I have never used that ink on a solid...will have to try it now.
