More Penny Black's


)
I have a few Penny Black stamps and have found they suit the Pearlescent paints for colouring in. I did one yesterday afternoon and another one this afternoon. They are so quick to colour using this medium.

Yesterday I also used Card Patterns #76 sketch -
Card Patterns #76


I changed it about a bit... putting the scallop edge up the top rather than at the bottom.
I used some PP I found on my desk...( not sure who it's by) and the green for the scallop and the sentiment are from Paint chips. I painted the Penny Black mice with Pearlescent paints and die cut the circle. I then sponged Distress ink with the die still in place. - Broken China for the sky and Bundled Sage for the grass. The Kaiser flower was sprayed with home-made glimmer mist... ( Wild Honey re-inker and Perfect Pearls mixed together) I added a small green button and the green pearls.

Today's card is also for the Caardvarks challenge ( Christmas Tag or mini card)  I made a 4 x 3 3/4 inch card with a Penny Black Slapstick stamp
Caardvarks Christmas challenge


I stamped with Versafine Black and quickly embossed with clear EP. I then used Pearlescent paints to colour the image. Cut it to size and stuck to the red base. Added a Peel Craft sentiment.  ( made a mess with the first one so had to added a piece of card with it on to cover the boo boo!!) A really nice a quick card.

Went back to work today, but still coughing a lot so came home at lunch time... everyone was getting annoyed at the noise I was making!!!!    MUST GET BETTER SOON!!!!  The countdown is on... 9 more sleeps!!!!

take care and have a great week.
