Penny Black Bountiful in two colour ways

Now I've started on the Penny Black stamps I can't stop, them and the new flex markers . I had some great comments on the colouring on my last card , I'd put it down to my new pens and the paper I'm using , I bought a pack of 20 sheets of A4 Neenah classic crest card by crafter's companion. Mine cost £3.99 at my local craft shop. Being a thrifty girl (apart from my obsessive stamp buying oh and I should add paterned papers ) I though oooh bit expensive, but let me tell you it's worth it , great results , no bleeding with alcohol pens and a lovely crisp white look.

For my two cards I used a Penny Black stamp called "bountiful ", one of my favs .

The red and brown card , the papers are First Edition j'adore, the sticky ribbon embellishments, do craft Hampshire. Sentiment craftwork cards and a few red gem from hobby craft.

The soft pastel card , the papers and sentiments are a new do craft range, vintage notes, great for valentine or Anniversaries. The ribbon and flower gems old stash, probably hobby craft..

Two gorgeous cards. It's a fabulous PB stamp. I love the bold colours on the top card and the pretty paper on the second.

Two gorgeous cards Jane, I think I like the first one the most, but only because it's lovely and bright and made me think of summer whilst I'm sat here freezing.

What a coincidence Jane, I've had very same stamp out as well today.

Both of your colourways on this one are pretty but I think if I had to choose a favourite it would be the first one.

Thanks for sharing another piece of your lovely work with us at Penny Black and More challenge.

Gorgeous cards, I love seeing same stamp in different colourways and the first would probably be my favourite just because its a gorgeous splash of colour. Need to order more neenah card, down to my last few sheets!
