PB Aviary

IMG_0821 (2)

Hello and welcome

I’m thrilled to be here as a new member of the wonderful Penny Black Saturday Challenge!! I have always loved Penny Black stamps and they were some of the very first stamps I ever bought (and I still use those wood block stamps!)

As it’s the first Saturday of the month, it’s time for a  new challenge – March – Anything Goes (Optional ‘Think Spring’).

My card features the PB – Aviary stamp, which is new for me.  I love bird houses and felt that with the pots and birds it said “Spring”.

After stamping the image, I watercoloured using Tombow Markers and Distress Inks.

After trimming, I added it to a long card covered with DP and a strip of hessian ribbon.

I wanted to let the image remain centre stage.

Don’t forget to head over to our blog to check out the wonderful inspiration from the rest of our Design Team.

I look forward to seeing what you create for this challenge!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit.  I love to read your comments.

Have a great day

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
