Many thanks to everyone who entered our recipe challenge last week ... you were certainly cooking with gas on that one!! I must apologise that I haven't really been commenting much lately ... we have been refurbing our study over the past few weeks and so our main PC has been disconnected - for some reason the laptop has been very slow in connecting to each new site which has made multiple commenting very difficult. ... but now the normal PC is up and running again so I'm hoping to get back on track !! :-)
So onto this week, where our theme is
Let's Get Punchy!
Yep!! we'd like to see you break out those punches - border, corner and/or individual punches - the more the merrier! The only other rule is that you must use a Penny Black stamp or sticker as the main focus of your creation.
This week we have got another fab prize for one lucky randomly drawn winner, from our regular sponsor
The rest of the DT have sure been punching above their weight with some stunning samples - hope you will go and check them out - not forgetting our brand new GDT member for May - Janiel.
Here's my card for this week - I'm getting rather addicted to punches (especially Martha Stewart ones) so I didn't need asking twice, and in fact you might say I got a bit punch drunk, as I used four different punches on this one!
Once again I focussed on the idea of a garden trellis covered in summer foliage and wildlife - I used my MS deep edge "garden trellis" punch, and edged it with my new MS "woodland bough" punch (to create the trailing greenery) which I bought at Aintree last weekend. I then decorated the trellis with small MS monarch butterfly punched shapes, and tiny Papermania punched flowers.
Main image: Penny Black "Dream a Dream"; coloured with watercolour pencils, edges distressed with Colorbox Queue ink, and flowers decorated with tiny Papermania gems;
Sentiment: Hampton Art stamps;
Papers: Papermania "Rose Garden";
Supplies: papermania translucent gems; small pearls from my stash;
Tools: large classic oval and large scalloped oval Nestabilities; MS "garden trellis" and "woodland bough" edge punches; MS "Small monarch butterfly" punch; Papermania small retro flower punch.
I would like to enter this card for a few challenges too ...
Hope you're having a great bank holiday weekend - no work for me now til next Wednesday cos I've got Tuesday off for my birthday:-) Looking forward to seeing your creations.
