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

IMG_1113 (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!

This card features PB – Little Dainties stamp and watercoloured with  Distress Inks. They made me think of forget-me-nots, so I chose Blueprint Sketch ink for the flowers and green for the leaves.

I then used the same blue ink to add washes to the background along with some blue splatters.

The sentiment PB – Sprinkles and Smiles was also stamped using the Blueprint Sketch ink.

The panel was die cut using SSS -Frames and the outer scalloped edge washed with Blue to match.

DP  matching with the green on the card was added to the card front.

The panel was then added to the card front using fun foam.

I love working with stamps like this one as I find I can work with them more easily on any kind of project material with any medium, ink or embossing. ( Vellum, watercolour paper, clear acetate kraft card, fun foam and so much more.)

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.
