Penny Black Stamp and Other Challenges


Hooray, I finally found the time to make a card and forgot how much I love my crafting.
I just adore this Penny Black Slapstick Stamp called "for goodness sake". She looks so innocent.
I have coloured with Copics on Canson Art Board and just love the ways the pens blend on this. The papers are a mix of Basic Grey and various Punches, Stickles & Liquid Pearls used along with other bits from stash.
I took the sketch from this weeks Spoonful of Sugar Challenge, its a fab sketch and may use it again.

My card also fits in with other challenges below
Creative Card Crew - Happy Birthday
FlutterBy Wednesday - Sparkle (on the flower)
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Childhood Memories
Crazy Challenge - Dont Call Me Flat
Crafty Angels - My Favourite Things
Simple Doodles -Inspire Others
Simon Says Challenge - A Card for a Child
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Birthday Card or Gift
Quixotic Challenge - The Joys of Spring
Meljens Designs - Girly Colours
Penny Black - Buttons
Papertake Weekly - Cutie Pie

Still in and out for the rest of the week but hope to be getting bcak to some normality.
Thanks for taking the time to look, off to catch up with some blogs!
