Penny Black | Poetic 2017 Collection | Spotlight 2

Hello everyone! This month, I’m back with more cards for Penny Black featuring stamps and dies from their newest Poetic 2017 catalog. The newest sentiments are fabulous! Love the font they chose!

Here is my first spotlight and I’m showcasing the 30-433 Be... sentiment set: 

To feature this sentiment set, I combined the text with the formerly released 30-234 Critter Time stamp set. I created a simple beach scene with Copic markers. I made a light blue sky, an easy water background and sand.  I stamped, colored and cut out the mouse with scissors. I then stamped the Yourself sentiment in black ink onto white cardstock and cut it out with scissors too. I fixed the image as well as the sentiment with foam pads to the beach scene for more dimension. The TREAT was computer-generated with Word and the seagulls were hand-drawn with a black marker. To finish off the project, I fixed the scene on a top-folded card base with foam adhesive. 

Here are the stamps I used for this card (click to the images to enlarge):
