More Penny Black goodness....

At the moment I seem to be on a bit of a Penny Black roll..... My very first stamp was a Penny Black... Due to winning some on Kathy's blog, my PB stamps have increased in the last few months....   Over the past few weeks I entered a couple of challenges over on the Penny Black blog ( here)

The first was to "lift" a card from one of the design team.  I chose to "lift" this card from Jenyfur
Cheer Up ATC

Jenyfur made an ATC but I went with a full card
Inspired by Jenyfur at Penny Black

I used a pink Copic to colour and then painted watered down Liquid Pearls for a shine. The sentiment is from Polka Doodles.   Used Black enamel accents for the flower centres.

My second card was for National Scrapbooking Day ~ a monochromatic card.  As usual, I went for minimalistic CAS.
Penny Black NSD Challenge

I stamped this PB flower which I've had for over 3 years now then I used Nestibilities Long Rectangles to cut it out and the mirror matting.  Used Swiss Dots embossing folder to give some texture.

Hope you are all well... I'm home from work today due to waking with a horrible headache... I had a bit of a funny dizzy spell again yesterday at work, but it past quickly...a walk in the fresh air at lunch time helped.... so a morning in bed today was called for.  Plus a quiet afternoon...

Cheers
