2 Challenges - 1 card (Penny Black)


I made this card combining two great challenges, Penny Black saturday challenge , and Mojo Monday sketch challenge . For Penny Black Challenge #30 we were to use embossing in our project. I used my new cuttlebug folder (textile texture). The image was colored with Prisma, blick studio and copic markers. I need to get a few more copics, I am not very happy how my flower pot turned out. (Don't have the right colors!) I added a little bit of stickles to the bee's wings and the flower center. I also added stickles to the strip of celery prints designer paper. The sentiment is from vases in vogue (retired SU). I punched it out with SU's small oval punch and adhered it to a basic black small oval. This was adhered to the basic black card front. The card base is certainly celery. To finish the card off, I added the circle which is folded in half, put an eyelet thru and tied a bow using black gingham ribbon. That little pink flower that I found in my stash was just perfect to add next to the sentiment using a gold brad. The image was attached with dimensionals.
This is such a beautiful sketch! I will be using it again soon! Thanks for looking.
