A Gift For You (PB Saturday Challenge)

I would like to thank everyone over at C.R.AF.T Challenge for selecting my card in Top 3 in their Christmas in July Challenge. I really appreciate your support and love joining in their fun challenges.

I was thrilled today to have my card chosen in the Top 3 over at Kickstart Christmas Challenge! Thanks so much to the team over at this fun challenge. I don’t make too many Christmas cards so was thrilled to win a spot!! Be sure to check out their blog. “A gorgeous monochrome masterpiece.”

Hello and welcome

It’s time for a reminder of the current challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge!  Mays theme  is Anything Goes (Optional – ‘Monochrome‘).  There is still time for you to join in the fun!

Today I am using a new to me stamp PB – Waddling by. I loved it the first time I saw it. I also felt it was perfect for the Monochrome theme, as the majority of the image would be black and white shades anyway! ๐Ÿ™‚

After stamping the image, it was watercoloured using Distress ink. (So easy – only one colour!!)

I continued slowly building up the details on the image by varying the strength of the ink washes.

The panel was then cut using MFT – Die-namics – Wonky Squares Stax and layered on black before adding it to the card front.

The sentiment tag is from Mama Elephant – Sew Fancy Creative Dies. I rather liked the details on the little tag as it gave some interest to an otherwise fairy plain card. The sentiment is from the PB stamp set.

I then added faux stitching on the tag with a black pen.

The tag was then added to the card using raised tape.

I hope this happy little penguin brings you a smile. I think he’d be fun for a birthday card bry changing the decorations on the parcel.

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.
