Clearly In Love


We are up to the mid month point for Penny Black And More and the Challenge is 'Autumn Colours' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black

Crafty Ribbons

PRP Papercrafts

Flonz Crafts

And one lucky person using a Penny Black image will be picked to be Guest Designer for next month, 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. 

This is a different type of card for me - but i needed to do something very CAS, as it was for a friend, who's Dad had passed away (i don't do Sympathy cards) the image is quite small as it is taken from a Transparent Penny Black Set - 'Clearly In Love - 30-009' and i also coloured it with (for a change) : Tim Holtz - Distressed Inks - Scattered Straw, Tea Dye, Spiced Marmalade, Dried Marigold, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint and i cut the image into 4 with: Spellbinders - 'Fleur De Lis Squares', then i coloured the rose in on another image and glossy accented it to put on top, the sentiment is Penny Black - 'Salutations - 30-014', the papers are : Kaisercraft - 'Peachy Keen Collection', the pearls are : The Hobby House.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Bearly Mine - where September's Challenge is 'Autumn Colours' - Orange, Yellow, Green And Brown

Alphabet Challenge - where 'P is for Pretty Petals'

Oldie But A Goodie - where the Challenge is 'Autumn'

Simply Create Too - where Challenge No: 70 is 'Fall / Autumn'

Corrosive Challenge - where Challenge No: 208 is 'Autumn / Fall'
