Off Off and Away, And Girls with Attitude

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Thanks to everyone who joined us last week the response was fantastic, onto this weeks challenge

Anything Goes

Now this one should be an easy one... or if you want to challenge yourself to something new.. then let your creative run wild. Your limitations are endless... you can create a card, altered art, bag, notebook, candle, box, etc... or even use a past challenge theme if you like.
The only RULE is to ensure you use at least 1 PB image/sentiment on your card.
We have a great set of stamps on offer for one lucky crafter from our Sponsor Simon Says Stamp.

I ordered this stamp earlier in the year but had trouble finding papers to go with it, but on one of my regular visits to The Sweet Shoppe Designs I found this set of downloads called Surfs Up and it was just perfect. I think it must have been the lovely sunny weather we are having at the moment in Canterbury that inspired this card. Well I am looking forward to the weekend, I hope you all have a great one.

Papers are carried onto the inside of the card.

Stamp - Penny Black
Colouring Medium - Copics
Papers -
Sweet Shoppe Designs
Tools - Swirl Punch - The Hobby House
Embellishments - Raffia Ribbon Hobbycraft, rest from

Truly Scrumptious Challenge

I haven't entered many challenges lately due to time restraints and I feel really bad as so many of you follow challenges where I am on the Dt and I hate not supporting my fellow Blog Buddies, so I intend to try to rectify this omission over the coming weeks. I couldn't resist this fabulous sketch on Truly Scrumptious and the DT cards gave me loads of inspiration

Like many of you my Gorjuss Girls set 2 from Funky Kits popped through the letterbox yesterday, I couldn't rest until I had inked up these little babies and not satisfied with just the one I had to use 3 on this card.

I love these two they remind me of a couple of Goths with attitude, so they had to be coloured in muted greys and purples, this was also a great colour combo to go with the new Basic Grey Wisteria Pack. I wanted the right background to mount the images on and couldn't find what I wanted so I coloured a piece of glossy card with Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord Distress Ink, I like the result. The edge of the punched flowers have also been distressed with the same inks.

I had to add another image inside, I am surprised I confined myself to just 3 little ones and havn't used all 6. lol
