Penny Black Saturday Challange Entry

I'm on a roll today with the sun shining the kids are happy as they can play in the garden and Sophie is sound asleep again so I have made the most of the quiet and had a go at a card for the Penny Black Saturday Challange, I've been meaning to have a go for ages so here goes.
I decided to use an old Penny Black Stamp ( I have been collecting some of the older ones as a hobby, a bit sad maybe but never mind). It's a Rose Arbour which I have coloured using blending & distress inks and then used Prima's and buttons as centres and corner decoration. Finished with a beautiful best wishes sentiment.
I'm getting addicted to this Challange thing. If you fancy having a go at the challange follow this link and try it.
Good Luck

Sugar Bowl Weekly Challange Entry

Challange 11 - Kathy's Sketch

After recieving the brilliant Sugar Nellie Rubber Stamps this week I couldn't wait to get started and this challange is the first I have done using a sketch. I hope you guys at the Sugar Bowl Blog like it ??? I've used the pearls as asked and followed the sketch as best as I can only struggled on the fancy shape on the left which I didn't have so I made my own variation and then used a sentiment to finish.

Blog Candy Inspired Card

I decided to make a card following Tracy's Blog candy competition. I've used the Penny Black Rubber Stamp, water colour pencils and then I used Glossy Accents to highlight the water parts. It looks really realistic up close. I hope I win the goodies.
