Jill Foster Penny Black Card

Hi everyone! It’s Jill Foster here and I’m honored to be sharing a card featuring Penny Black’s newest collection, Follow Your Heart!

One of my favorite things about this collection is that, while it is love-themed, the stamps and dies are versatile enough to be used for many occasions throughout the year- anniversary, thinking of you, or just to send a snail mail hug to a friend. And I just can’t resist this happy little hedgie from the transparent set, Furry Hugs.

I wish he was headed down the path to my house with that scrummy treat! Heehee!

To create the background for my card, I applied Ranger Archival inks to smooth Neenah Cardstock using an ink blending tool and foam pad. The adorable houses are from Penny Black’s Creative Die set, Neighborhood Love. All of my die cut elements were inked with Distress Inks.

The hedgie was painted using Distress Reinkers as watercolor paints. I just love using my reinkers in this way. The color is so bold and intense! Just add a tiny drop to a small palette (I use an old acrylic block), dilute with water, and paint the stamped image.
Thanks for joining me today. Hugs and happy stamping!
