Penny Black Challenge Week 105

Hello - I was happy when I saw the lay-out for the Penny Black challenge this week. One of my son's good friend and his wife just had a baby girl last Monday - so when I saw this lay-out I knew I was going to use my new Penny Black stamp. Once again I used watercolor paper and Tim Holtz distress inks to color. I am really enjoying this technique and the colors of the inks are perfect! It is a nice change from my copics which I use most of the time. I layered turquoise cardstock, some cute butterfly designer paper (sorry don't know which company - it was a scrap piece), some pink cardstock which I ran through my cuttlebug and used a strip of lacey fence like paper for the horizontal strip. I then finished off the card with 3 blue fuzzy brads, some fuzzy blue wavy ribbon, cut out a butterfly from the designer paper and added a small baby diaper pin to the centre (I like how that turned out), and then I used another Penny Black set to stamp the tiny bow and the "it's a girl" sentiment - I attached them together with the same fuzzy blue wavy ribbon. I also stamped the main image twice, cut out the top flowers which I layered for a bit of dimension. Thanks to the Penny Black team for supplying such a great lay-out - really enjoyed this one. Thank you for stopping by to have a look - your past comments have been so wonderful and appreciated!!

Your stamping friend Debbie!
