Today, I have a fun summer shape card to share with you using one of the beautiful stamps from Penny Black and the fantastic products from Faber-Castel Design•Memory•Craft.

Here is the card that I designed.  I used StazOn Jet Black Ink from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko to stamp the Sweet Dahlia Stamp image from Penny Black on to Sweet Tooth paper from

I used 105111115 Aquarelles going from a yellow to a dark orange to color the image of the dahlia.  Then I used a water brush to blend and watercolor the flower. 

I used the Lavender and Lime Gelatos® to color the flourishes along the side and bottom of the image.  Then I used some of the Stamper's Big Brush Pens to finish off the card.  I used May Green for the flower stem, Orange Glaze for the frame and Light Blue for the words.

Here is a close up of the image.  I used S4-389 Adorning Squares die template from Spellbinders® to cut/emboss the image.  I added some diamond stickles and bling to the image for a little sparkle.  ;-)

I used 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® to pop up the image.  Then I used LF-018 Grand Decorative Labels One to create a mat for the image and LF-161 Grand Labels One to create the shape card.
