It’s Your Special Day (Penny Black Saturday Challenge)

IMG_1074 (2)

Hello and welcome

I’m back with the new June Penny Black Saturday Challenge! This month the theme is Anything Goes (option ‘Spots and / or Stripes’ ).  I hope you have the chance to join in the fun!

My card features PB Rose Garden slapstick cling stamp. It was stamped in Brown ink and watercoloured with a mix of Distress Inks, Zig Brush markers and Tombow Pens. This allowed me to have different yellow, orange range roses.  Not my favourite colours to work with.

This was then fussy cut and a strip of ribbon added across the tub.

The background used MFT Jumbo Polka Dot stencil.

A strip of DP across the bottom was added along with the sentiment PB – Sprinkles and Smiles set gold heat embossed.

The flowers were then added using raised tape.

I hope my card brings you a smile.

Please head over to our blog to  check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.

I look forward to seeing what you create!  Good luck!

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

Have a great week!

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.

  1. Well these may not be your fav colours to work with but you did an amazing job. The pot of flowers is one any of us would cherish! I love how you teamed this up with the spot background and keeping this in soft colours means the flowers are still the stars! Thanks for joining Time Out x
