I have been hoarding some patterned paper (Color Wash by Pink Paislee) and when I received my new (to me) Penny Black stamp I decided to make good use of it. These were 3" left over cuts, so stamped and embossed the flowers with Versamark and liquid platinum. Then I colored in just a bit of the flowers using my watercolor pencils - I wanted soft colors to go with the paper and these were the best choice since I didn't want to use a lot of water and have the paper warp.
I have had these pencils forever - I think they should be called VSUS (very seldom used stuff - kind of like Darnell's NBUS). Really love how they gave a hint of a coordinating color.
SSS sentiment. Will add rest of the it on the inside like maybe "birthday wishes" or "best wishes" when needed.
Will enter this in SSS "Anything Goes" using Penny Black and Case Study #134 challenges.
Thanks for visiting today and love reading your kind comments. Betty
EDIT: Read Darnell's comment below - we decided that both Mt. VSUS and Mt. NBUS are definitely volcanic and have erupted all over the place!!!
