Friday Sketchers 17 & Penny Black 12 - Stars & Stripes

A lack of time this weekend meant I had to combine two challenges into one card and I am really pleased how it turned out!

The Friday Sketchers Challenge number 17 is:

And the Penny Black Challenge 12 is


I've used Pink Petticoat papers layered in two different directions along with co-ordinating paper to back the image stamp, layered onto purple cardstock with glittered edge. The stars have been punched and the sentiment I found in my stash! The actual card itself is also purple - just to be different!

  • Backing papers: Pink Petticoat Doodle-icious Christmas
  • Image: Hand coloured Penny Black stamp with water colour paints
  • Other Bits: Star punch, cardstock from my stash, glitter glue and sentiment also from my stash
