Today is all about celebrating YOU! (PB Saturday Challenge)

Hello and welcome

It’s time for a reminder for the current challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge!  Mays theme  is Anything Goes (Optional – ‘Fussy or Fancy’).  I hope you have a chance to join in the fun!

Penny Black Design Team

My card is a very simple one and features an old Penny Black wood block stamp- Friendly Chat, which I water coloured with Tombow Pens.

The background was lightly washed using Distress Inks.

The fence is from Couture Creations.

A frame was cut using Stamplorations Wonky Stitched rectangles.

The sentiment is from PB -Sprinkles and Smiles stamp set.

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 and will be sure to check out your blog.

I hope all is going well for you all! Stay safe!

Cheers

Helen

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.
