Good morning all - it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge! Thanks so much to everyone who joined in with scenic creations last week ... a bit lower number of entries than usual so I guess some of you struggled ... but those who managed it made a wonderful job!
This week we have a theme that we hope you'll find sweet in all senses of the word - we would like to see something
on your projects :-) As always you an interpret this however you choose so long as you submit a new project and we can see a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as its main focus.
This week's fab prize is a $20 store voucher from 1-2-3 Stitch - lovely!
Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's deliciousness - here is mine for this week.
I actually have three or four Penny Black images that involve food (plus a couple more that involve champagne and that's also pretty delicious in my book!!) ... but I can never resist this cute mouse falling asleep in the chocolate box after over-induging! I decided to make an easel card specifically so that I could enter a couple of additional challenges; and I added a charm so I could enter a couple more :-). How cute is this charm??
Easels are very difficult to photograph as I'm sure we all know, and also on this one I couldn't seem to get a true colour in the dull light ... but here is closer view of the front anyway. It also seemed particularly appropriate for the image to use a big "chocolate box" bow!
Main image: Penny Black "Sweet Slumber" (1916J), coloured with mixture of Promarkers (Cinammon, Tan, Cocoa, Sandstone, Blush, Dusky Pink, Baby Pink, Cerise) and Copics (RV02, RV10, E31, E50, E51, E53)
Sentiments: Penny Black transparent sets "Salutations" (on card) and "Bubbly" (on tag);
Papers: Papermania "Forever Friends - Springtime";
Supplies: pearls from The Hobby House; Papermania pink heart gems; ribbon, lace and choc bar charm from my stash;
Tools: labels ?? nestabilities; Martha Stewart "doily lace" edge punch; Marianne D Creatables doily die; Magnolia doohickey "vintage tag".

I hope it is ok to enter for both Promarker and Copic challenges seeing as I have used both ... unusually I have listed them just to avoid confusion. I must confess I do major on Promarkers, but I have a few Copics for specific purposes such as colouring fur, and I have a couple of pink ones!! :-)
Hope you can join us this week with your delicious creations - have a great weekend!
.... and talking of something delicious, whilst writing this post I have just had a knock ont he door, and a neighbour has handed over a package that the postie left with them this morning, containing my 24 all new Letraset flexmarker pens - YAY! Woo hoo!! (Pity the postie didn't see fit to leave a card through the door but I guess you can't have everything!)
It is Friday night now as I write this for scheduling, and I really don't know how I'm going to contain myself until tomorrow to have a play with my new toys ;-)
