Good morning, and welcome once again to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. It was wonderful to see everyone's "get well" cards last week - what a fantastic selection as always. Don't forget to visit the challenge blog to see who has won Carole's gorgeous selection of ribbons.
I haven't had much time for crafting this week as I've been both busy and slightly under the weather with a cold; but I couldn't resist making my DT card for this week's challenge as the theme is
Something you can eat
... and eating always works for me lol! I actually have several PB stamps which would fit the bill, but I decided to base my whole card around a gorgeous piece of ribbon I bought from Penrith Crafts on a craft retreat last autumn. I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to bring it into play ... so this challenge made me think the time has come!
I used the discontinued PB stamp "Sweet Slumber" which I had to pay somewhat over the odds to buy off ebay after previously using RAK images - it is coloured with a mix of watercolour pencils and Cosmic Shimmers to give the box a twinkly look! I cut the image out using my labels nesties and matted at an angle onto some unusual "distressed" gold and brown metallic card. The papers are individual sheets from a broken up stack but I believe they are K&Co. - I inked and distressed the edges with walnut stain & antique linen distress inks.... I fondly imageined that it might give an impression of choccy stains!! Flowers are all Prima and pearl brads are by Papermania; and the sentiment is also by PB.
Had another go at decorating the inside, and you can probably just about see that I have used my new martha Stewart doily edge punch for the first time - woo hoo!
As always we have got a fab priz on offer this week for one lucky winner, which is 2 fantastic sheets of stickeroos kindly donated by Tracie. These really are just the business if you need to make a card quickly, and PB stickers really are great quality!
Please do pop over to the other DT members' blogs as they have produced a mouthwatering assortment of cards on this theme - looking forward to seeing all your "recipes" lol!
