Merry & Joy with Penny Black

Greetings all! I wanted to create one last Christmas themed set of cards with a new to me Penny Black stamp AND also play along with Penny Black Saturday Challenge and of course, NBUS!
I've been watching a lot of PB&J You Tubes lately and I've got to say, they are so inspiring! I love to color and Jill Foster is amazing with her creativity. Recently I  purchased Rosa PB-40-741 from 123 and created these 2 cards with it:
Starting with Ranger Ink's Distress Ink Mini Cubes directly onto the Penny Black stamp and using Bristol Smooth card stock, I found that I was coloring not only the flowers, but the stems in the same color. So in order to have separate colors (no mixed brown on this card!) I switched to my Tombow Markers and all was well! Jill Foster shows this method in almost all of her You Tubes.
I used 2 colors of red and 2 of green on each card. The sentiments are from a retired Winnie & Walter set and stamped with Altenew's Obsidian Black Pigment Ink. Perfect for crisp dark stamping. Both of them got a good splattering of gold watercolor paint and a few gold baubles for a little bling!
Here they are side by side:
Couldn't you see this stamp for birthdays, Mother's Day, Thinking of You, Get Well and on and on. So versatile! These 2 are going out in the mail tomorrow...hoping they will arrive before Christmas. If you haven't tried Penny Black stamps you are missing out. Check out their You Tubes for so much inspiration.
Thanks for joining me today and Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!
