A Bit of Romance

I've not managed a Penny Black Challenge for a while but just had to join in with this one!

This week it is:


This week the challenge is sponsored by Funky Hand - you too could get your mitts on the fantastic Huge Funky Love download (but only if you enter!) And these are the very same papers! What a coincidence eh?!

So, all the papers are from Huge Funky Love - the edging around the image are actually hearts from the same papers and the flower at the top is also made from the hearts and is there to hide a splodge of ink as I was not paying sufficient attention when inking the edges!

I've watercoloured the image and then gone over it a bit with watercolour pencils and used a compass to get the right sized circle. The image was sent to me by my fellow Funky Hand DT mate Kath in a recent image swop that we took part in. And the ribbon is from the seemingly never ending 90 odd metres spool I bought!

  • Backing papers: Huge Funky Love download
  • Image: Penny Black coloured with watercolour paints and pencils
  • Ribbon: From my stash
