Penny Black saturday week 100 bloghop
Penny Black saturday challenge are having their 100:th challenge this week. To celebrate they are hosting a bloghop with lots of prizes. I just had to join :) Barely made it sitting those few moments to make the card, but I reallly wanted to join so I pushed through. Otherwise I've been crosstitching and jewelrymaking in the sofa in a half sitting/half laying position.I haven't been able to sit and make any cards and those few moments I can I want to make items for my DT positions. So this is an exception, but I will show you some jewelry and other things I can make in the sofa.
It has been quite a while since I made any cards using PB stamps. Some of my poor PBs haven't even seen ink yet, poor things (especially the clear stamps like the ones I've used here). I used stamps from three different sets:
Hedgie from "garden friends"
Mice from "micey day"
Text from "wonderful"
The challenge was a sketch and I'm very happy how I used it. I turned it 90 degrees and used the rectangle panel to have an image in. It's not something I usually do. Don't think I've ever had a card with two different images like this. I just love the pink and turquoise togethe and I added little pieces of sheer ribbon to the sides of the mice. Oooh, I need to add glitter to the flowers. Will do that and upload better pics tomorrow :D
I only used one patterned paper and two pieces of cardstock, but I think it looks ritcher than it really is. I used my new scalloped circle nesties and embossed the pink circle with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The text is just stamped with black and then I coloured it in with pink and turquoise promarkers - same as I used to colour the animals. Easy, huh?
