Penny Black Challenge #60 - Summer

I think yesterday while working on the upcoming Digital Tuesday Challenge, I actually found my mojo again. Yippie! So today I can show you a new card I made for today's Penny Black Challenge, with the theme "Summer".

I used a brand new Penny Black image, called "guess what", that I purchased a few weeks ago, can you believe it took me this long to ink it up??!!


I colored it with prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil. Did some sponging along the edge in bashful blue and then adhered to a scallop nesties rectangle. This was also my first time using the new in colors, even though I've had them since the second week of July. I used the pink one (I think it's called melon mambo) as my card base and used a SU jumbo wheel (Doodle) with white craft ink on the top edge. Designer Paper is SU's olive prints. To finish this card off I stamped the sentiment with chocolate chip ink, added the ribbon and prima flowers with pearl centers and a little bit of stickles to the flower that the mouse is holding. The main image was popped up with dimensionals.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. Hope you like my card!
