Another 1 Layer Penny Black Card


Our current challenge at PBSC is one layer cards. I was inspired by Maura's card for last month's challenge.  She linked to this video for the background technique. I used Distress Paints seedless preserves, spun sugar & bundled sage. The PB stamps are pointille, constellations & friendship.  I'm also entering CropStop & SSS Monday.

Thought you might enjoy seeing my new tree rose, Shazam.  It's right outside my kitchen window where I see it many times a day. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  4. I just watched Kim's video and that is a clever way to make a background. I do like what you did with the distress inks and the colors you blended together. Very unique.
