Penny Black Guest Designer

Hello my friends and welcome to my Guest Designer post for Penny Black Saturday Challenges! Penny Black is one of my absolute favorite stamp companies and I love the opportunity to go through my Penny Black stash and this case I made multiple cards.  The theme for this challenge which begins Saturday, March 2, 2024 is Anything Goes with Optional Easter.
I needed some anniversary cards and thought the Spring Tulips and the love theme would be perfect! 
I used 3 main Penny Black Die Cuts products for my cards today: The TULIPS #51-430, were cut out of Ranger Ink Distress Tim Holtz Water Color Card Stock, the YOU #51-760 and IMMENSE LOVE #51-760 were cut from Bristol Smooth Card Stock. All were cut three times each and layer together with Bearly Arts Glue for nice dimension.
Penny Black's Creative Dies set called CROSS STITCH BORDERS was used for the background for this card. I ran the largest die 3 times through the front of the card to create texture and movement. 
The card below uses Penny Black's Creative Die DAINTY DASHES STACKERS for the edges which I personally love.
Here's a close up of the water coloring on all the tulips using Mungyo's Professional Half Pan Watercolors. Most of the sentiments come from Waffle Flower's Happy Anniversary stamp set.  
Here are all 3 shown together: The large die cut words were ink blended with Ranger Ink's Distress Inks: blues were Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon. The Purples were Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Villianous Potion. 
Penny Black's products are all high quality and well designed. They are so much fun to take a day or two and just mix and match and create! Thank you for joining me today and I'm looking forward to seeing your work at the challenge
