Happy Saturday everyone and welcome to this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge . I'm sure you'll agree Tracie's sketch last week was a stunner, and the result was some brilliant entries for last week's challenge. As always details of the prizewinner will be posted on the challege blog this morning.
So onto this week's challenge, which is
Now if like me you get nervous at the thought of doodling, I hope you will be tempted to try by this week's prize ..... I'm particularly excited as I chose and donated it so naturally I think it's adorable! It is the PB stamp "Dream a Dream" ... this cute li'l bear even features in my blog header!!Please don't forget to check out the other DT members' blogs for some brilliant inspiration - there are some much more artistic efforts than I could manage lol! Sadly our dear friend Tracie cannot join us this week as she has received the sad news that her granddad has passed away - our thoughts are with you hun and we hope you will be able to face rejoining us soon.
On a happier note, here is my card for this week. Now I will hold my hand up and say that originally I wanted to make a card using the bear above, but that went a bit pear shaped when I unexpectedly had to make mum's Mother's Day card a day earlier than anticipated..... so I had to incorporate some doodling as I had no time to make two cards! Doodling isn't my forte I have to say, but hey it's done now! However I tried to make up for it by introducing a whole new element - I used Penny Black papers!! :-)
Stamps used: Penny Black "Blush"; Woodware clear sentiments ("On Mother's Day"); WOJ sentiments ("From the Heart" & "Wishing You the Perfect Day").
Colouring media: detail gold embossing.
Papers: Penny Black gold embossed papers - inside cut with MS doily punch.
Lettering: Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet.
Supplies: lace from Hobbycraft; Prima flowers; ribbon and brads from my stash.
And the inside .....
Now I would also love to enter this card into the current Sketch & Stash challenge #6, as I was inspired by the sketch which I have rotated by 180 degrees. What's new?? Well ... the flower stamp, WOJ sentiments (first inking), ribbon, and gorgeous PB papers which I got from a visit to Horseshoe Crafts in Shropshire whilst on a country break last weekend.
You have probably noticed by now that I have been on a bit of a roll with this new flower stamp. I'm really loving its versatility, but promise I will try to go for a change on my next cards!
Looking forward to seeing all your creations - have a good weekend.
