Just for You (Leaves) Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Hello and welcome

I’m back to remind you about the  Penny Black Saturday September Challenge! This month the theme is  Anything Goes (Optional ‘Your Favourite Colour’).  I hope you have a chance to join in the fun!

I decided to do something different this time and not use any stamps. I have a couple of PB dies and stencils I love and decided to bring some of them out. I started by die cutting PB Flower Frolic die once in white, once in black and finally in gold making sure the die fitted along the paper cut to the card front.

Once I was happy with the copic colouring on the white die cut, I added some Gelly Roll pen along the leaves on all the die cuts, and some Wink of Stella to the flowers on the coloured piece.

The negative piece of gold card was trimmed to shape and the right side removed. It was then trimmed to fit the kraft card front.

PB Verdant stencil was used with Versamark ink to add a subtle background to the kraft card, before the gold piece was attached. I love using this stencil as it works so well with these die cut leaves. They are not the same size, but work beautifully together! Here they add the extra layer of interest to the leaves.

The black die cut was glued in place, then the gold offset and finally, the coloured piece in the middle.

The sentiment is from PB – Just for You die cut was cut in black and added at the bottom.

It is very different but was fun to play with.

I hope my card brings you a smile! πŸ™‚

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 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.
