Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 162

Morning folks...yes it's Saturday and that means it's time to look out those Penny Blacks again.  I loved all your Starburst inspired cards last week and thanks once again for joining in the fun....pop over to Penny Black Saturday to see who was last week's lucky winner.
The challenge this week is.....
PENNY BLACK/GROUND
what on earth is she on about it....
well in a nutshell we want to see you create a background with your Penny Black stamps...not as scary as you think....just requires a little bit of thinking out of the box.


This is right up my street...takes me back to when I first started stamping...long before there were all those gorgeous patterned papers on the market that we take for granted now and is still one of my favourite techniques....perhaps that's why the cubbyhole paper mountain just gets bigger and bigger.
I started off by creating a soft colour background with TH Distress Ink....Antique Linen and then overstamped with icons from Penny Black Salutations Clear Stamp Set in Brushed Corduroy and Aged Mahogany...
using the same technique I stamped the gorgeous Chearful Image.. cut out and layered with 3D Foam Pads.  Then it was time to don the rubber gloves to colour Ribbon Girl Seam Binding with Aged Mahogany Ink with a little help from a Mini-Mister.....simples....so have a go folks.
We have a very special prize this week....something a little bit different...
The lucky winner will be joining the girls on the team as
GUEST DESIGNER
for the month of September...cool huh!
so instead of heading for the hills....why don't you pop over...check out all the fabulous Penny Black/Grounds from our fabulous Design Team and put your thinking caps on.  I'm off to get ready for my Fun Christmas In July Day at The Papeterie and will catch up with you all tomorrow.
Have a great weekend and Happy Crafting
Hugs Kath xxx
