Hi everyone ... welcome to the weekend and another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks to everyone who entered last week's "green" challenge - fabby entries as always ... don't forget to check the main blog to see if you are a winner !
This week is the spring solstice in the northern hemisphere, so we thought we would celebrate with a theme of
Spring Is Sprung
As always we have a fabulous prize .. this week it is from our lovely former team mate Carole - and is this adorable and highly appropriate stamp.
2304F Seeing Your Face
Please remember that in order to be eligible for the prize you should submit a new piece of work which has a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as its main focus.
The rest of the DT have made some totally gorgeous spring creations, so I hope you will go and check them out. Here is my springtime card.
I should start by saying that this card was very much influenced by Brenda, as I saw an absolutely stunning card using this stamp on her blog. I love brushstroke stamps, but had never realised there was a brushstroke daffodil before (maybe because it is called "Jonquil" - I had never studied the picture closely!!) Anyhow I just had to order it when I saw Brenda's card, and also bought three new Marvey markers so that I would have just the right selection of yellows, golds and greens to colour it with.
I'm still liking CAS cards so decided not to over-complicate this image by adding background paper; but at the same time I wanted to get a spring garden effect, so decided to add a garden trellis with butterflies.
Main image: Penny Black "Jonquil" (3587K) coloured with Marvey brushstroke markers;
Sentiment : Penny Black
Supplies: Papermania gold gems;
Tools: Martha Stewart "garden trellis" deep edge punch and "monarch butterfly" punch.
