My First Design Team!
I am thrilled to let you know that I am now a member of the Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT! Penny Black was one of the first companies I was introduced to & loved when I began stamping over 15 years ago. The October challenge is Halloween or Halloween colors. I thought it'd be fun to make an October birthday card. The PB tree stamp (splendor) has always been one of my favorites, but I hadn't used it for awhile. This time I decided to watercolor my embossed image instead of sponging on the inks. I used Distress Ink spiced marmalade, dusty concord & peeled paint. I really love the sentiment (from the set: every happiness) & that it has 2 fonts. Even though it's small it stamps beautifully and I didn't have to use detail embossing powder. For lots of inspiration, check out the wonderful creations my teammates made & I'd love for you to play along this month! Thanks so much for visiting my blog & brightening my day.
