Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week 129

Morning's Saturday and time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday and if you are reading this it means that Mr Blogger has been an excellent chap and done what he has been told for once....if not well me scheduling this post has been a waste of time.
The challenge this week is...
which means that you can use ONE COLOUR or shades of that colour

Two fabulous tutorials for you this week from the very talented Promarker Queen and Letraset Product Coach Debbi.....just pop over to Penny Black Saturday and click on the link
Sadly this is Debbi's last week with us but I am sure you will join me in saying a huge thank you for the time and effort she has put into these tutorials...for sharing her wonderful talent and lots of hints and tips for using Promarkers with us all.

And we have a very special bumper prize for one lucky winner who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday

15% off lifetime discount voucher to use at this wonderful online Aladdin's cave filled to the brim with all our favourite Penny Blacks

4 Rolls of Ribbon of the winner's choice

and from Letraset

the 6 colours that Debbi used this week in her Monochrome Tutorial

and here's my effort using gentle with me I am still learning

Background created with Hero Arts Large Plaid Pattern design block
stamped in Versamark and embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder and then inked with fast becoming my favourite Distress Ink.....Pumice Stone
Image: Penny Black.....1657K....Ode to Joy
Snowflakes....Sizzix Die
Pearls...Hobby House
Ribbon...Simply Create
Sentiment....Craftwork Cards

I'll be home on Tuesday so will be popping over to catch up with all your creations for this week's challenge and I do believe you will have the pleasure of the Furry Boy's company tomorrow.....he has been left in sole charge of the cubbyhole and between you and I suspect he may be planning another "clean out some of Mum's stash" session.
In the meantime Happy Crafting
Hugs Kath xxx
