Hi everyone ... another week had flown by, and here we are again at Saturday, which means it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
Thanks to everyone for your doodletastic entries into last week's challenge - don't forget to check the main blog to see if you have won either of last week's yummy prizes.
This week we guess many of you may be gearing up for Father's Day ... or if not, then maybe you need a card for one of the men in your life. So this week's challenge theme is
One For The Guys
As always you can interpret this however you wish; but to be eligible for this week's prize you should submit a new piece of work which features a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo.
And to tempt you this week we have got another delish prize ... it is from our lovely ex-teamie Carole
and is this delish PB stamp "Love Nip".
The other ladies have conjured up some fabulous masculine cards - here is my effort for this week.
Initially I thought I would really struggle with this theme, as I have loads of PB stamps but hardly any "masculine" ones .. and those few I do have have already been seen by the only two male family members I need to make cards for! When I started scrabbling around amongst my stash I found these couple of images in a tranparent set called "Bubbly" - masculine and sight unseen by my nearest and dearest - but ... they are absolutely TINY and no way would they make a focal point of a card. I therefore decided that I would make my text big and artfully (?) place the images around it ... but then came the next problem - my die cut alphabet isn't big enough, and I don't have any templates for letters .... so I ended up making some letter templates using Wordart, and then cutting out the letters by hand from patterned paper. If you look closely they are a bit rough and ready, but the thought's there!
Main images: Penny Black transparent set "Bubbly", coloured with Promarkers and Copics;
Sentiments: computer generated, with "Dad" cut out from Wordart templates;
Papers: All My Memories (double sided paper), distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink;
Supplies: buttons from stash;
Tools: Martha Stewart "scalloped dots" edge punch.
