Good Neighbors

I'm back again with a Penny Black card this time.  
I started by splashing some distress ink pink and green onto watercolor paper.  When dry, I stamped the Penny Black image, Good Neighbors 40-439, onto my created background, using my Misti with Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink.  I use this ink when I want to do no-line coloring, as it fades into the coloring, leaving no lines!

I used my Polychromos colored pencils to color the image.
I find color pencil work so relaxing and satisfying.

For the verse, I chose an oldie PB verse, Thinking of You 451C, and inked it with coffee Ranger Archival ink. I used a Die-namics stitched rectangles die for the image, then layered it up a tad, adding some twine, and pink Nuvo jewel drops.

I hope you are enjoying the design team challenge cards, and will have a chance to play with us.  You just may win some free stamps!  Just hop on over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog and link in your card or cards!
