Penny Black Challenge 113 On the Beach
Hello everyone - it is so nice having all this peace and quiet - I was able to whip together a card for this week's Penny Black challenge - it has been a while since I joined along as I have been so very busy with work and home life. On the Beach is the theme so I immediately thought of this adorable Penny Black image and gathered a bunch of my new Bo Bunny paper. The background circle is actually cut from some paper that my daughter brought back for me from Australia when she was there a few years ago. I never wanted to use it because it was very special to me but I thought for this challenge it was the perfect fit. I stamped the mice image with Memento Black Tuxedo ink and colored it in with my copic markers E49, E44, E41 and the flower is YR24, YR21 and YR00. The sentiment is a C.C. Design stamp. I used my nestability for the background and layered the papers, added some clear orange pearls and then used my sparkle glue to add to the flower, starfish, sun and waves on the water. I wish I hadn't added the waves on the water because I didn't get them straight and that annoys me (I am very anal about things unfortunately or maybe it is a good thing - I haven't yet figured that out). Have a great Wednesday and thank you so very much for stopping by for a visit.
Your stamping friend - Debbie!
