The weeks are racing past now in the run up to Christmas, and here we are again at Saturday and time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks very much to everyone who entered last week's song title/lyrics challenge - your creations were fabulous! Don't forget to check the challenge blog to see who won last week's prize.
This week we are gearing up proper for the Christmas rush - our theme is
Christmas for the Guys
Now this may mean masculine colours, cute masculine images eg. snowmen .... the interpretation is up to you so long as you follow the usual rule - there must be a Penny Black image or sticker on your creation.
To help you on your way we have got another fab prize - our regular sponsor 1-2-3 Stitch is offering a $20 gift voucher for one lucky randomly-picked winner to spend in their online store. So what are you waiting for?? - do visit the other DT members' blogs for some brilliant inspiration, and then crack on with another card for the Christmas box :-)
Here is my card for this week - although I own quite a lot of PB stamps, not many of them could really be described as masculine ... so I decided to go in an alternative direction. I based my card around a sentiment stamp, and the use of masculine colours with snowflake decoration rather than any flowers.
Main image: Penny Black "Joy - Hope" (3898F), stamped using Versamagic chalk ink;
Supplies: purple "happy Christmas" ribbon and purle gems by Papermania; pearl brads and spacers from The Hobby House; "ice gold" white pearlescent card from Edwin Allen; navy pearlescent and purple glitter card from my stash;
Tools: Shapeabilities "Make a Flake 2"; Martha Stewart "Arctic snowflake" punch and "embossed snowflakes" edge punch.
Here's the obligatory angle shot to show the sheen on the pearlescent card.
Hope you all have a great weekend, and look forward to seeing your creations.
