Woo hoo! Saturday's here, so it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
Sorry to anyone who has looked on here Saturday morning - I have just logged on 11am and found that a gremlin has published the post I spent about an hour writing last night with no content!!
So, sorry this is going to be a bit shorter than usual as I don't have time to completely recreate it all again!! Thanks to everyone who entered last week, and please check out the main challenge blog for the rest of the DT's lovely samples, challenge rules, last week's winners and this week's prizes !! :-)
So .. straight to business, this week's theme is a really easy peasy one ...
..or so I thought .. for some reason I always have a really strange mental block when there is an open theme - I guess i jsut have too much choice when it comes to PB stamps lol! Anyhow here is my card for this week.
I went out of my usual zone a little and heat embossed this pretty PB stamp which hasn't seen daylight for quite a while, and then coloured using Cosmic Shimmer paints which have also been extremely neglected!! The overall effect is rather twinkly, but the dull light doesn't show that very well.
In fact the whole card is rather glittery as I also used a glitter paper, spotty glitter card and glitter card for my matting ... in fact just about the only thing that didn't get glittered is the flowers lol!
