Black and White Christmas - Penny Black Saturday Challenge


PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE

Sentiment Only

This week we thought we'd make it a little tricker and get you to think outside the box and get those brain cells working.

We'd like to see your creations with NO IMAGES !!!
Just a PB Sentiment Stamp.
There is a lovely Sentiment Stamp on offer this week so please come and join us. The new DT is well and truly up and running and they have made some fabulous and different cards for you this week, click Here to see their work and to find out more about this weeks challenge



Most of you who know me will be surprised to see a plain card, I do go for colour and embellie overload, but I do quite like this one and Tracie asked us to work out of our comfort zone. I have layered up Black BC, with Silver Mirror Card (which is not something I use very often) then embossed the Christmas Tree in the Cuttlebug Embossing folder. I have added self stick Red gems and silver stickles to the tree. The sentiment just called out to be cut into a triangle (tree shape) after matting onto more Silver Mirror card, I used 3d pads to attach to the corner and just finished off with the swirl ribbon.
The photo is not very good, going to have to find out how to photograph mirror card before I do another one like this.
I am now off to stamp some new rubba that arrived this morning, yes My Whiff of Joy stamps arrived half an hour ago he! he!. They even better IRL.
