Penny Black Challenge


This weeks challenge over at Penny Black is to create an ATC with one of their stamps. I found this cute teddy called "Flat Out" laying at the back of my shelf, I knew I had a few round there somewhere but this little fellow was flat on his face. I coloured the background with chalk inks and added a strip of paper from Karen Foster "Dog Chronicle" down the side. Coloured the image with Promarkers and added 2 Prima Flowers and a brad then sprayed over the whole ATC with Gold Glimmer Mist to give a delicate sheen. Haven't made an ATC in ages and it certainly made a nice change, just got think what I can do with this ATC now (mmmm!)
