Delicate Florals / Penny Black & More


The October Challenge over at  Penny Black And More  this month is 'Anything Goes', so there is no reason why you shouldn't have a go and join in, we also have some wonderful sponsors this month :

Penny Black

Crimson Cloud

Crafty Ribbons


And One lucky person using a Penny Black Image will be picked to be Guest Designer for next month and win a gift too. So pop over to Penny Black And More, check out the other amazing inspiration the very talented team have come up with, and join in the fun, but please do remember you can use any image you like, except Digi's.

And Here's What I Made :

I recently went to a class held by the very talented Kay Carley and we used 'JoFo' stamps, but i decided to come home and play with my PB's and this is the result :

I stamped 40-103 'Delicate Florals' in the middle
next was : 3549F 'Love In Bloom' and i stamped it out on a piece of plain paper twice before i stamped it on the card - this is the one that looks like grasses at the bottom
then i masked off the hedgehog in 4057K 'Flutter- bye' and stamped the butterfly, i coloured them all in with Twinkling H20's,
then distressed the whole card with Tim Holtz - 'Weathered Wood and Bundled Sage' and then spritzed it,
I decided i didn't want the whole of 3947K 'Day-dreams', so again i masked half of it off and then stamped using 'Weathered Wood'
the sentiment is taken from 30-014 'Salutations'
I went round the edge with Stickles - 'Crystal' and mounted the card on to Bazzill Bling that i had embossed in the corners with CB - 'Victoria.

I must confess it did take me 5 attempts to get to this stage, but i'm so pleased with the end result though.
