Penny Black Sketch Challenge
Penny Black is having a sketch challenge (and they have introduced their new designer, Kelley Eubanks!!! I love her work), and I thought I would make a card to submit before we leave tomorrow for our trip to Seattle! Here is the card I managed to put together. It's one of those that I am still pondering over....you know the kind....
Paper: cardstock (PTI)l Neenah
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers: Antique Linen distress ink
Stamps: Penny Black (Baby Hammock 2073J; Hugs - sentiment)
Other: Paper flower; Perfect Pearls Mist; Twine (The Twinery); Ribbon (recycled); Liquid Pearls White Opal; Glossy Accents; Dimensional Squares
I felt like colouring this little image, that hedgie looks so peaceful, far away in her thoughts. Instead of layering the image on a circle, which was my first thought, I started to rummage in my draw and saw these large paper flowers. So, I took one out and spritzed it heavily with Perfect Pearls Mist and used that as a mat for something different.
I applied some Liquid Pearls to the petals of the two flowers in the stamped image, and also some Glosy Accents to the butterfly and Teddy Bear. The circular image is popped up with dimensional squares over the paper flower.
And then seeing as I was in a "be different" mood I decided to use twine and a ribbon instead of three pieces of cardstock which had been my first choice!
Enjoy, I am off to pack now!
