Fishing Friends

March 21, 2011

Welcome to another week of inspiration at the Penny Black Blog! Denise Marzec will be here all week with her divine cards showcasing background stamping. Today’s card was stamped with “Fishing Friends” and colored with Copic Markers;

The background panel was stamped with our new Slapstick Stamp, “Paisley Outline“. It’s a super-sized, deeply etched stamp measuring 4 1/2″ x 5 3/4”. It covers an A2 card panel perfectly!

Denise also used Penny Black’s Mix & Match Cardstock from our Clear Skies and Fern Grove Trios. Denise is back tomorrow with another example of background stamping.

Are you ready for this week’s card challenge! Create a new card using Penny Black stamps which features background stamping. Anything goes here — get creative and have fun! Upload your entry into our Gallery by Midnight on Sunday night, PST for a chance to win. The card challenge winner will be announced next Tuesday and receive their choice of three Penny Black stamps or stamp sets. Be sure to tag your entry with “backgroundstamping“. Good luck!

    I thoroughly enjoy backgrounds – shall have fun with this one. Love the Paisley background stamp too – so versatile for many occasions or as you have it as a feature by itself with a sentiment.

    Very cute card. I like the background stamping. I haven’t tried that technique, yet – just received my PB paisley stamp, so I’m all set to make a card for this week’s contest!

    This card is so matching outside and inside! It gives me a feeling as it is like ‘magic card’ – now you see it, now you don’t!
