Flower Lantern (PB Saturday Challenge)

I would like to thank Bev and the team over at Uniko Studios for selecting my card as the Winner of their recent Challenge #67. I am honoured to have my card selected from all the wonderful entries.

Hello and welcome

It’s time for the new October challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge!  The theme  is  Anything Goes (Optional ‘Colour Inspiration – (Pick at least two colours from: Black, Orange, Purple, Green, Red, White & Teal)’)

Penny Black Design Team

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome

Prize – a $20 voucher!

I chose to use orange, green, black and white on my card for this challenge, as I thought they suited the PB – Flower Lantern stamp perfectly. I’ve had this one for a while but haven’t used it before. I jsut love the shapes on this image.

After lightly stamping with colur added directly to my stamp with Distress Ink pens, I washed over the image with water to get the colours to blend and move. To finish, I continued water colouring with Distress inks, until I was happy with the detail.

I decided to leave it without a sentiment, as I’m not sure of the occasion I will use this one for.

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.
