Happy Together

Today's cards feature a couple of stamps from a Penny Black set that I got for Christmas called 'Happy Together'. I stamped them on to watercolour paper using another Christmas present...a 'No Line Colouring' ink pad by a brand called Ink on 3...then coloured them using watercolour pencils. This was my first attempt...and I really like the effect, but definitely need more practice! I added a sentiment (from the same stamp set), then distressed the edges a little and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.

Cannot get hold of one of these pads - they all seem to be out of stock!
