Hi everyone, and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks so much to everyone who entered last week's CASE it challenge - it was wonderful to see all the fab interpretations of Jenny's card.
This week our thoughts are turning to spring and summery weather with a challenge theme of
In The Garden
.. though you might say this is a bit ambitious in view of the awful weather we've been having!!
As always you can interpret the them however you like so long as you link to a newly posted piece of work, and we can see a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as its main focus.
This week we are sponsored by the lovely 1-2-3 Stitch
with a prize of a $20 online store voucher - lovely!
The rest of the DT have worked their usual magic .. here is my effort for this week.
I really love this vintage little girl stamp - one of the very few vintage PB's I own, and picked up as a pre-loved bargain from my local craft shop's second hand table. I decided to stick with an overall country vintage theme, by going with gingham and patchwork flowered paper, gingham ribbons, an old-fashioned garden trellis and a vintage ticket sentiment.
Stamps: Penny Black "A Gift of Flowers" (586K); Whimsy friendship ticket sentiment;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Me To You "Spring Chic";
Supplies: ribbon, pearls and charm from my stash;
Tools: martha Stewart "garden trellis" edge punch; X-Cut flower and butterfly punches; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch.
