Penny Black challenge

This is my entry for the PB Challenge this week which is "circles". As it's Kelsey's birthday in a few days time, I decided to make this card for her as she loves cats .... especially her Monty. I used the PB stamp Bee Costume and coloured in with watercolours. The wings have been painted using cosmic shimmer, then overlayed with sakura clear stardust. Used my cricut accent cartridge to cut out the "circle" images, and to add more definition around the image I embossed with circles. Inked up the edges a little, ribbon to show off the letters spelling her name and a simple messages to finish. I'm really happy with the way this turned out, even my OH commented on how good it looks and yes Kelsey did find it so I don't need to worry now about putting it into an envelope.


Papers used: K&Co Berry Sweet Collection
Image: Penny Black Bee Costume
Pencils, Inks, Pens: All from stash
Die cutting: Jasmine, Plantin & Accent Essentials
