Penny Black Color Challenges

banner


I'm a bit late, but in case you've missed it, check out the Penny Black blog this week. There's a new color combo challenge each day & you have until Sept. 27th to play along.

colorfulxmasMy sister & I are having a great time (no men around to keep happy--LOL!)  Laurie only crafts when she's with me, & that's a shame as you will see by her beautiful card I'm sharing.

We pulled out some old Penny Black stickers & got to work.  Laurie took the Day 1 color combo.  She was able to change the green on the ornament by using glitter.  Love the layers she chose & the one rounded corner--& of course, the dots of Stickles & a pearl. The panel is mounted with foam tape.
My Sister's Card 

colorfulxmas-tuesdayI decided to make a Valentine's Day card & began by cutting out the flowers from one sticker & layering it on my other one. (It's always great to buy 2 of a sticker sheet so you have this option.) I added Antique Linen stickles as the color combo I'm using is from Day 2. I also used a COPIC marker to change the stems to a shade of the blue we're to use & hopefully that's close enough--LOL! My sentiment is from Penny Black's "butterfly symphony", 30-148, clear set.  Love the row of hearts sticker--fun & easy to use.

  8. WOW, Great, you girls are magic makers with those PB stickers! I have some I just uncovered - never even occurred to me to "transform" them, so thanks for that neat trick! And you are right about Raulie's (it seemed only right) talent. It's a shame she doesn't make cards more often! Enjoy the rest of the visit! Hugs, Darnell
