Penny Black Guest Designer - 2

It's mid month and time for a reminder to join in at Penny Black's Saturday Challenge where the theme is "Anything Goes" and "Optional -Easter". I used a stamp and a separate Creative Die today for these love themed anniversary cards.

The mini stamp set is called FOR YOU #30-801. I stamped it with Altenew's Obsidian Black Pigment Ink unto Ranger Ink's Distress Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock and sprinkled it with Altenew's Crisp Clear Embossing Powder while the ink was still wet and heat set it.
I watercolored the image with Mungyo Professional Half Pan Watercolor Set (48) for it has some lovely browns, perfect for our little mice. One card has a pink rose and one card has a red rose. 
I used the sentiments from the stamp set, too. The little tag on the rose was blank, so I cut apart the word "Love" from the "Lots of Love" stamp and it fit perfectly into the tag. I can just puzzle the 2 parts of the stamp together next time I want to use the full sentiment.
I wanted the mice to be on something....something to ground them and I happen to have Penny Black's Creative Dies WOOD FLOORS #51-441 which I thought was just perfect! There are 2 dies in this set - the floor which embossed the lines and the separate baseboard. I cut 2 sets for each card and layered them up for nice thick floor dimension. It really gives the card some structure.
The floor boards were ink blended with Distress Inks: Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain.
I always have such fun creating with Penny Black products. They are really versatile and can be used for so many occasions...I can see the mice running on top of the IMMENSE LOVE Creative Die...umm, I'll have to try that next! Thank you to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for inviting me to Guest Design this month. It was so fun!
