I wanted to make a card using a different technique today. I decided to hand color some very cute Penny Black stamps. I love Penny Black stamps. This is a clear stamp set I bought a couple years ago. I wanted to make a male and female card. I have such a hard time making male cards. I honestly find them boring to make, lol. My wonderful husband bought me a Purple Cow paper cutter from Costco for Valentine's Day. Never mind the flowers give me the crafty products. This paper cutter have 7 different blades and one is a perforated blade. I saw the bookmark card on Splitcoast stampers and tried making it and cutting the bookmark by hand but I did not like how it came out. So I finally got to make this card. I did not use the tutorial I just sized it the way I wanted and started the decorating.
I hand colored the stamps using my Prism colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. After it dried I used the Glossy Accents on the balloons and tie.
The male version of this bookmark card I kept very simple. I did most of the same things as the female version.
