Penny Black Challenge

At last I've finally gotten around to making & uploading a card this weekend.... took long enough didn't it.

Hubby finally returned yesterday with the camera, all be it with a flat battery so that had to be charged. Also had to pop out & collect something for dinner as mother hubbards cupboard was bare. By the time night arrived my eyes were still a bit on the sore side so opted not to do any crafting as it would probably have been a mess anyway.

Now that I've had a good nights sleep & a nice relaxing morning, I've come up with this little baby for the Penny Black challenge... which this week is a 3-2-1. Yes we have been asked to use 3 flowers, 2 papers & 1 brad/charm.

Here I used some double sided paper from K&Co combined with some matting & layering on white card stock.

Next I attached some Prima flowers... pearls for the centres of the 2 small ones & a pearl brad on the large one and 2 small gems on opposite corners of the image.

The image was coloured using Koi water colours.

Off to spruce myself up now as it's off out to do the weekly shop & also look at new tv's...

Will hopefully manage to get back later with another little something.

Happy crafting
