Star - Inspired


As today is the first Sunday of the month, that means a new Challenge over at Penny Black & More and this month it's 'Summer Flowers' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black 

All Occasion Dies

Crafts U Love 

Marianne D

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.

I must confess this was not my favourite Challenge, as it was out of my comfort zone - I firstly stamped : Penny Black - 'Star - Inspried / 4156K / 2011' (i've added brown beads to the centre)  in brown ink and embossed it with : WOW - 'Clear Embossing Powder', then i used : Tim Holtz - 'Bundled Sage' and inked up the card, i then inked up : Penny Black - 'Letter Background / 1999L / 2010' with : Tim Holtz - 'Shabby Shutters' and stamped all over, the sentiment is : Woodware - 'Tiny Phrases'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
