Time for our new challenge at Penny Black Saturday challenge. This month the theme is NEW--new year, job, baby, stash, technique, etc. I chose to use the Penny Black roman surround background for the first time. After heat embossing I used a small circle die to cut the edges into scallops. The Penny Black butterfly (symbol of new life) die is cut from a new black glitter cardstock as well as plain cardstock. I attached the bodies & gently lifted up the top wings. StazOn ink makes a great impression with clear stamps so I used it for the PB sentiment which I trimmed into a flag. Red & Star Dust Stickles were added to the background & it's popped up with foam tape.
Check out the wonderful work of my teamies & hope to see you in the gallery. This will be my second entry for Darnell's 3rd NBUS challenge. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
