Away In a Manger


Penny Black Challenge

Our theme on Penny Black Challenge is to create a card that relates to a Song Title/Lyrics, had great fun with this, We have a fab Guest Designer for this Month the brilliant talented Debby from Scrap Journey to see Debbys card and the rest of the Dts fabulous ideas just click Here"



I found this fabulous PB stamp on The Glitterpot website and just had to have it. After looking at the fabulous tutorial by Jeanette on the Whiff of Joy Tutorial blog, I thought I would have a go at mixing Prismas with Copics and am really pleased with the results, although it is much brighter than my normal colouring. The papers are all by Basic Grey.



Well by the time you read this I should be whooping it up at the NEC, I am so excited. Give you the low down on the day on Sunday

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Hi Jacqui! catching up again, there are never enough hours in the day! I love this PB image and the bright colours. I must admit to using pencils on top of my markers quite often as I've not got enough colours to get the shading otherwise. I think it's a fabulous technique.
