Good morning everyone, and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Hope you've all had a good week ... I managed (for once) to get off work very early yesterday, so I had a bit of a cardmaking sesh yesterday afternoon and evening, and caught up with myself a little!
Before I get on to this week's challenge, we have lots of news for you this week.
Firstly, our former teamie, the very talented Jacqui is rejoining us after a spell away pursuing her other fabby projects ... woo hoo and welcome back hun!!
Secondly, we are welcoming a brand new regular sponsor this week - the brilliant J&C Creations - who are offering one lucky randomly drawn winner a £10 voucher for their online store :-)
Last and by no means least .... from next week we are changing the format of the challenge and relaunching it as a MONTHLY challenge on the first Saturday of every month ... and we will be kicking off with a blog hop featuring lots of inspiration and prizes!!
But back to this week - and our challenge for you this time is
As always you can interpret this however you like, but to be eligible for our prize you should submit a new piece of work that features a Penny Black image stamp, large sentiment or stickeroo as its main focus.
The rest of the DT have made some amazing samples so I do hope you will check them out - here is what I did.
I cut a square of embossed sparkly paper, and punched around the page to form a snowflake border. I then embossed a snowflake pattern onto a larger square of silver holographic card (which looks very colourful when photographed - it is much more silver in real life!!), cut an aperture in my white paper, and matted it onto the silver card. I cut a smaller piece of card using the same set of nestie labels, and embossed a greeting in silver. I then mounted the greeting panel raised on foam tape with some silver thread ricrac ribbon behind, and finished off with some silver metal snowflake brads and teeny gemstones.
Stamp: Penny Black "a wish..." (2502F)
Paper: Best Creations Inc.
Supplies: Dovecraft snowflake brads; Papermania ric rac ribbon; gems from The Hobby House;
Tools: Martha Stewart "Snow Flurry" PATP set; Create Too "Snowflakes" embossing folder.
