PENNY BLACK CHIC



Good day all you lovely crafters out there, it's Wednesday, so we are on the downhill slope to the weekend! Can't wait to do more cardmaking, and crafting. Well today, my Challenge is from Sketch Saturday - Sketch No. 14. This was a great Sketch, I really enjoyed doing it! For this one, I have picked a Penny Black stamp called "Chic!", which has been coloured using my tried and tested Art-Kure Watercolour Brushes. The stamped image was layered up on a piece of Lilac pearlescent cardstock. The backing paper, was a FREEBIE from a crafting magazine. Out of the same Lilac cardstock, I cut of three small scalloped circles using my "Nesties", layered up a flower on each, and topped them with these lovely purple hearts which were embellishments, which I pulled apart. The silk flowers came from WH Smith, would you believe - check them out they have a lovely range of crafting goodies!

Thanks for visiting, and please come back soon. Miss you already! Happy crafting x
