Blooming Gorgeous!

I do miss entering the Penny Black Challenges and I'm lucky enough to have quite a collection of stamped images sent to me by my fab Funky Hand DT mates! Plus I am the very proud owner of a single PB stamp and I have some Stickeroos too - so I have no excuse!

Anyway, this week, the challenge is:

Blooming Gorgeous

This lovely cute image was stamped for me by Jozza and I'd already coloured it in some time ago as I wanted to use it on a different project, but ran out of time. So, its been coloured with watercolour paints, layered onto some pink and white spotty backing paper that I found (so don't know what it is!) and then used up some larger scraps of paper printed from Funky Daze.

The sentiment was part of a recent freebie selection, from, I think, the Do Crafts magazine and the ribbon is from my stash. A simple and quick card to make, but for some reason, it took me ages! Why does that happen?!!
  • Backing paper: Funky Daze cd, bright pink - don't know
  • Image: Penny Black, coloured with watercolour paints and sent to me by Jozza
  • Ribbon: From my stash
  • Sentiment: Freebie from Do Crafts magazine


  1. Fab card & what a cute PB image. Loving that spotty paper & how you have used the same design but in different colour ways. I must try & play along with this blog because I actually own quite a few PB stamps . . . maybe I should get them out & give then a good inking!
