Liquid Pearls and Gelly Rollers

All of the stamps featured below are rubber wood mounted stamps from Penny Black and are currently in stock.

Colouring in with Liquid Pearls is very easy. Squeeze out a small amount onto a plate. Dip your brush into water and squeeze out the excess. Dip the brush into the Pearls and start painting. 
There are 30 different colours in the collection of Liquid Pearls.

Team Effort is the name of this Penny Black stamp and it is so cute. Jill coloured the image in with Liquid Pearls and it was stamped with Jet Black Staz On. It also features a Stamp It Happy Birthday stamp.

Self Cling Unmounted Stamp

The Team Teddy card also features the Birthday Jump stamp from Stamp It. This image has also been coloured in with the Liquid Pearls. We have also used a Stamp It balloon stamp that we are using on a current display on this card.

Amongst the Stars features the the Happy Birthday stamp which we like to use as it is a handy little one to place on a card without taking up too much room. We have also used the birthday brads which we have in stock and lots of colours to choose from.

By The Cartful was coloured in using the Pearls but the image was first heat embossed. The images must be either heat embossed or stamped with a non water based ink (Staz On) so that the ink does not run when you apply the Liquid Pearls.

Bearing Gifts was coloured in using  combination of Pearls and Tombow pens. The image was first coloured in with the Tombow pens. Then a wash of Bisque was put over the teddy and the flowers were coloured in with the Pearls. This image was also heat embossed.  

Shirley coloured in the image above. I love the way Shirley combines the products when she colours. On the image above she has coloured most of the girl with Spectrum Pens, used Tombows
on the smaller sections (like her shoes), put metallic streaks through her hair with the Gelly Rollers (metallic gel pens with flicks of silver in the ink) and on the candle and even used a bit of Aqualip pens in there as well on the cake . 

Tete-a-tete has been coloured in just using Gelly Rollers. These are gel pens which have flecks of silver in the ink. The silver flecks show up really well in this photo. 

All of our Penny Black stamps are on special.

In A Dream

The stamp below is from Stamp It and is called "In A Dream".  
We have featured it previously on a display and here are a few more cards that we have made with it.

Woodmount Stamp

Shirley's card features the stamp embossed in black. It is then layered on red card and black glitter paper.  The rose is coloured in red and had Glossy Accents on top of it. To get the ribbon Shirley has layered 3 different ribbons on top of each other.

Jill embossed the image in silver and black embossing powder.  The silver paper at the bottom of the card is from the 12" glittered paper range that we have and now comes with a print on it.  There are 2 different ones in stock , both in silver.
