Penny Black Challenge

This is another first for me, joining in with the Penny Black Saturday challenge. This week is a sketch and you must use at least one Penny Black stamp on your card.

I stamped the PB stamp onto white card and coloured it using prismacolour pencils. The "just a note" stamp is from Studio G and the little red flowers and gold brads are from my stash.

In My Pocket .....

This weeks challenge on Hels blog is "in my pocket there is a postage stamp". Well I've not done the "in my pocket" challenge for a few weeks so I wanted to take part this week. I found this one so hard to do and didn't really have any suitable embellishments etc.

Anyway I covered the front flap of my pocket with Basic Grey paper and stamped an old car (Cats Life Press stamp) onto it using distress ink. For the inside I stamped the diamond backgroud stamp on the inside of the flap and then a loopy calligraphy stamp (Lost Coast Designs). I then added a couple of die cut stamps and to finish it off and also to help keep it closed I used a suitcase eyelet.
