Whilst trying to make the most of my craft weekend I decided to make a card for one of my fabourite challenges - Penny Black - but also to tie it in with a few other challenges that are currently in progress.
Last but not least: I have laid out the card in line with Friday Sketchers #21 , though I should mention I didn't have internet access and a friend drew it out for me ... the sketch I followed was slightly different from the picture below, but I did my best LOL :-).
I used: Penny Black "Snowy" stamp inked and edged with Colour Box queue ink from the "deep sea" set (this idea was devised by Mand, who tried it cos she hadn't got her waterbrush to colour in a Versafine image!!); sentiment stamp from "Make Your Mark" in York; snowflake brads by Dovecraft; white sparkly brad from Doodlebug "sugar coated" range; flower by Cardology; blue star gems by Papermania; ribbon and papers from my stash; white glitter card embossed with Cuttlebug snowflakes folder.
My name is Pauline, and I have been cardmaking since 2006. I started my cardmaking blog in 2008, to showcase my addiction to stamping and all things pretty - I can spend hours footling around matching up papers, ribbons and embellishments!! I have been on a number of card blog design teams, but am currently taking a step back due to various other commitments. During 2013 I discovered the joy of baking, and for 2014 have started a new baking blog to chart my progress and also include a charity element. I only wish I had more time to devote to these hobbies ... but I have to work full time as a project manager to help pay for my baking ingredients and crafty stash!!
