Polka-Dot Sprig by Penny Black

4304H Polka-Dot Sprig;  30-162 Eloquence
This is another of my favorite Penny Black woodblock stamps.  It is called Polka-dot Sprig.
I created the background by watercoloring with several colors of distress inks.  Then I stamped the image twice using VersaFine black ink.  I overstamped with Delicata Gold ink,  After carefully drying with a heat gun, I then stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I added the sentiment and a few sequins and used a white pen to create faux stitching.

There are some stamps that become classics and I think "element" type images are in that category.

I am having a lovely day but trying to shake off the disappointment of seeing one of my favorites get voted off "Dancing with the Stars" last night!!  I strongly felt that there were others who did not qualify to be in the finals!!  I keep telling myself it is just a tv show, but Charlie White should be in the finals!! 

Be sure to revisit some of your favorite stamps .. stamps need loving, too!
