I also used a new Penny Black stamp I just bought. Simple stamping with black archival ink, watercolouring it with the Zigs and a water brush, bordering with black, popping up on foam tape, and it was done in time to photograph and get into the Merry Monday challenge with minutes to spare.
Now I'm going to be super critical of myself - which is what happens when I do a card in such a rush. First of all the image and sentiment are not laid out the way I'd like it so the card looks unbalanced to me - maybe the sentiment in the top right corner would have been better, or moved over further to the right at the bottom, or I could have turned it into a square card. Maybe some flicking of black ink would have added more interest. It just looks unfinished to me! If anyone wants to comment on how they'd improve it, please do!
I might come back with some variations using this stamp and see if I can get something I'm happier with.
