PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE - WEEK 47


My final card for today is for Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 47 "Shapes" - use 3 different shapes (but not including your card and backing paper)... any shape - rectangle, square, circle, hearts etc. I have chosen one of the stamps from Penny Blacks NEW T-for Transparent Collection called Teddy and Company, and he has been coloured with Sukura Gel Pens. The image has been cut with an Octagonal nesty, and layered on blue card. The backing paper is from a Basic Grey paper pad called Blush. The sentiment was stamped on a scrap piece of card, and cut with an Oval nesty. And my third shape was a circle which I used to make my flowers, and also distressing their edges with a Heidi Swapp Distressing Tool, and to finish my card off, pearl brads in the centres of the flowers, some pale blue gems, and a piece of blue gingham ribbon, all from my craft stash. Thanks for stopping by, and hope you have a great day!
