Penny Black

Penny Black have a fabulous challenge this week

Penny Black/Ground

Use your penny black stamp to create a background.

As some of you are aware i have not felt like crafting for a lonnnnng time, but recently i tried a new approach, i moved away from character images and got out the distress inks.. so this weeks challenge at penny black was right up my street. This is my all time favorite Penny Black stamp, the shaped card is from Craftwork cards  i stamped randomly on the card them distressed round the edges.

I have lots more cards made in this new (to me) craft style when i am feeling braver i will share them ...

Just Magnolia & Hanglar

This week at Just magnolia & Hanglar the challenge is

Buttons, Bows & Blooms

The buttons and blooms are fine but i dont do bows purely cause i can not make them look right no matter how i try... so i had to use a ready made one. The fabulous image is one of a set i bought about three month ago and have only just used (tut tut) i coloured her with promarkers. The papers are My minds eye, flowers, gems and button from my stash and the little cupcake (so cute) is part of a set from my local craft shop.
