Penny Black Saturday August Challenge - Double The Trouble


Good morning crafters, and welcome to another  monthly Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Wow the past month has absolutely flown past - can't believe it's August already! Thanks so much to everyone who entered last month's challenge - don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you have won one of our awesome prizes.

Talking of prizes ... before I get on to this month's challenge theme, it's time for me to pick a winner of my July Blog Hop candy :-) I have used random.org, and the winner is


... and that's you Sue Mason!

Congratulations hun! Please email me your details within two weeks and I will post you your gorgeous Memory Box poppy die. If I don't hear from you after two weeks (I'm allowing for summer hols here !! :-) ) I will draw a new winner.

So onto this month's challenge, which is

Double The Trouble

(use two image stamps)

As usual we have a host of fabulous prizes - do check them out on the main challenge blog. Don't forget that to be eligible you need to submit a new project which follows the theme with two Penny Black images, large sentiments or stickeroos as the focus (two because it's double this month - geddit?? lol!!)

Anyhoo ... the other ladies have produced some inspiring examples as always - here is my effort.


Now I must confess I was struggling a bit with this challenge theme, as I couldn't seem to get two stamps which went together naturally. Then I remembered this cute little set of bears which I have had for a VERY long time, and i don't think I have ever inked them up before !! I think I originally bought them with a view to making a baby card, but for some reason I never quite got there with that particular project.

Only after I'd made the card though did I realise that I had interpreted TWO images as TWO OR MORE ... I actually used 4 so I think I got a bit carried away!


Stamps: Penny Black "Bear Blank 1", "2", "3", and "4"; birthday sentiment (masked) from "salutations" transparent set;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Paper: Forever Friends;
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; pink heart gems from Hobbycraft; rub-on letters by Doodlebug; ribbon and doily from my stash.

PaperPlay #31 - Layer It Up

Have a great weekend.
Hugs
