Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 198

Morning folks...I'm feeling a tad down in the dumps this morning...the first Saturday for ages that I'm not packing up the car and taking off to do a workshop with lovely crafty folks feels a little strange and waking up to yet another morning of dull dreich rainy weather hasn't helped to lift my mood...the thought of donning the waterproofs for another day of wet doggy strolls doesn't exactly fill me with glee.  But look on the bright side...it's a great excuse to slope off to your crafty space and play.  It just so happens that it's time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday so if like me you're feeling a little bit stir crazy...we would love you to come join us for this week's challenge...
NO PATTERNED PAPER
did I hear a sharp intake of breath there...it may be a little bit out of your comfort zone but have a go and you may just surprise yourselves.


Now here's a surprise but it just so happened that I had loads of Timmie products on my workdesk so I created the background by stamping and embossing with White Detail powder...a bit of distress ink blending before having fun with the Spritz and Flick Technique followed by a little overstamping and hey presto...

We have a fabilicious prize this week for one lucky winner who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday from our generous friends at...
Sweet Pea Collection...Peas In A Pod Pad
contains 24 sheets paper..2 sheets die cut flowers..2 sheets nesting sentiments..4 sheets embossed squares and you know how much I love this collection
So it's over to you now...get your thinking caps on and I'll be popping by to visit during the week...in the meantime enjoy your weekend whether you're out and about or like me having fun in your crafty space.
See you all tomorrow for a bit of a Tag Fest
Hugs Kath xxx

Gorgeous card Kath. Love how you've created the background. Must have a go at this technique.

Horrible weather for walking dogs here too. Max doesn't like rain on his face but Blue doesn't bother. Funny thing is Max would happily go in a burn up to his lugs!
