Penny Black – Smile All Day

Hello! Today, I’m sharing a watercolored card created with the Penny Black 30-305 Smile All Day stamp set.

Penny Black Smile All Day

I stamped the image on to Arches Cold Press watercolor paper with VersaFine ink and colored it with watercolor pencils. Once dry, I masked the image, (I stamped the image on masking paper, fussy-cut it, and applied to the watercolor image), and applied Distress inks for the sky and grass with Clarity Stencil Brushes. In the past, I’ve watercolored the sky, but doing so causes the panel to curl. By applying the ink dry with the brush, the panel was relatively flat. After removing the mask, I stamped the sentiment, cut the image with a circle die, and added it to a card base created with patterned paper.
