Designer Spotlight; Elizabeth Allan
Welcome back! We will be spotlighting our Designers and Contributors during the next few weeks here at the Penny Black Blog. We are thrilled to re-introduce you to our magnificent team of Penny Black artists. We’ll ask a few nosey questions to get to know them better, as well as feature brand new projects using our newest Halloween/Christmas stamps. Feel free to comment with your questions – our Designers will be monitoring the Blog and answering whatever crafty questions you may have for them.
How/when did you begin stamping? In college with a small set of foam Halloween stamps.
What is your favorite technique/style? Dimensional layering.
What Penny Black product are you most drawn to? It is difficult to pick just one as I love the variety of Penny Black’s products. They offer endless creative possibilities for many styles and techniques.
What do you do when you’re in a stamping ‘slump’? I stamp an image and color without trying to create anything specific or I will experiment with techniques.
How would you describe your craft space in three words? Full of Happiness
What would be your advice to beginner stampers? Have a good black ink pad as a part of your basic tool kit. My favorite is Onyx Black VersaFine by Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko.
Do you have any questions for our readers? What is your favorite holiday/occasion to create cards for?
SUPPLIES: Penny Black Les Petites (90-001), Cat Spell (30-132), Best Witches (30-131) (trick or treat sentiment). INSTRUCTIONS: Cut les petites card base into three sections. Create color blocks with Memento inks. Accent with dimensional stamped elements.
