Vintage Christmas

The Penny Black Challenge this week has a sketch:

And I've made this card with an image that I found pre-coloured in my box of images. Really like it when that happens! I've also used printed papers that I bought years ago from Mad About Cards - I think these are from the Traditional Download.

I've used pearlescent snowflakes and card candy too along with some corner rounding and inking. The burgundy paper is from the Scrap Store that I got ages ago and has been lurking waiting to be used!

  • Image: Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers and glitter glue
  • Papers: Mad About Cards download
  • Everything else: My stash
