Today, by accident, I ran across a blog called Penny Black Saturday Challenge. It is a sketch challenge using at least one Penny Black stamp. Here is the link: http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/. I am kind of new at doing challenges. I started after I signed up as a member of StampTV. It has been lots of fun participating. I love Penny Black stamps and have started collecting them from Stamper's Dream. When I saw this blog, thought I would participate. I used this kitty from Critter Party. I colored the design with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. The background papers are all from SU. The layers are So Saffron, Basic Black and Real Red. The verse is from the Critter Party. I stamped it then cut it out with small oval nestabilities. Before taking out of the die, I sponged it with So Saffron ink. The flowers, design, and verse are all up on dimensionals. The piece of black was run through the Swiss Dots cuttlebug embosssing folder.
