Time for a mini....

Penny Black blog had a weekend challenge over last weekend.... all about mini cards.  I have a few cutie Penny Black stamps so pulled them out and had a bit of fun making two mini cards.  I took an A5 sheet of white card and cut it in half to make two mini bases.

I embossed the background with a Cuttlebug folder, then stamped and cut the focal image.  Tried the over the edge cutting, but didn't quite get it right.  Coloured with some Copics and glitter pens.      The sentiment is also from the same PB set.

Penny Black Mini #2


I used some washi tape for my panel for this one, and then used a cute little mouse for my focal image.   I coloured this one with Pearlescent paints and some distress ink sponging.   The sentiment is an old PB I've had for simply ages.

The week seems to have flown by.... Friday tomorrow!   Looking forward to the weekend as I got my parcel from my win over at Simon Says.... lots of goodies to play with.  No sure where to start!  I've already inked up one of the little stamps I got....

See all again soon
