Penny Black #112 - a very slow cooking recipe!!

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome from me at last to the latest Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I'm sure that most of you will have already seen by now that this week's challenge is a


1 circle,2 papers, 3 flowers

Well I guess you could say I cooked mine in the slow cooker lol!!

So seeing as I'm so behind, I'll get straight to business . As always this week we have fab prizes for you - this time we have a 15% lifetime discount voucher from that emporium of all things PB - Dick at Penny Black Stamps

... and we also have 4 rolls of ribbon of the winner's choice from the yummy online ribbon store Fantastic Ribbons.

As always, if you would like to be in line for one of the fantastic prizes all you have to do is to produce a new piece of work using a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as its focal point - easy peasy!

Whilst I was patiently waiting for my recipe to come out of the slow cooker the rest of the DT were producing delicious concoctions out of the microwave - yep they were ready to serve long before this lol!! Do hope you will pop over to see them all. But at last - here's mine!

Main image: Penny Black "Message from Above" (2617J) coloured with Promarkers and edges inked wtih Colorbox Q ink;
Sentiment: Studio g;
Papers: Papermania "Summer Bloom";
Supplies: cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts (one coloured with promarkers); pearls from The Hobby House; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: "Labels One", "large classic circles" and "large classic scalloped circles" nestabilities; Leone Em "Ash Family" leaf punch; Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" edge punch.

As always I would like to line this card up for a few other challenges:

Simon Says - Going Dotty
Creative Inspirations #71 - Animals
By the Cute & Girly (August) - Animal Antics
Charisma #30 - Something with a tail (the little birdy :-) )
Dutch Dare #83 - Anything Goes
Paper Play #30 - Anything Goes

... and not but not least I used the sketch from Sketch & Stash #40 ... and my neglected stash is the cute hedgie stamp ansd the yellow dotty ribbon.

Have a great week - look forward to seeing your recipe creations :-)
