Penny Black Challenge

Finally I've managed to get a card made this week.... yippee.... it would have been uploaded yesterday but we ended up with no electricity for most of the day! I live next to a Scottish Power plant which is in the process of relocating so there has been a lot of work over the past year with relaying of cables etc so we have just come to accept that these things happen... hopefully not for much longer though as they are due to vacate the plant completely over the next few weeks... thank goodness for that.
Anyhow... the challenge this week at Penny Black is "Blooming Gorgeous" and a more perfect theme it couldn't have been... I have admire the "Whispers" stamp since the very first time I ever saw Kath use it. Well, last week I actually went on an interent hunt for it & treated myself.
Would you believe it actually arrived in the post last Saturday whilst I was at Artstamp with Gayle.
Here I made the card very simple by using Colorbox inks to stamp the image, then water coloured using Bruynzeel pencils. Finally some ribbon from my stash & yummy card candy from Craftwork Cards.
This is such a gorgeous stamp with so much potential for the variety of ways it can be used... and believe you me I'm going to have a ball trying all the different methods. lol....
Well I'm off to hit the old head with some hair dye now as there are one too many grey hairs showing for my liking.
I have another wee creation scheduled for later today & hope to fit another in if at all possible... got so much catching up to do it's shocking.
Happy crafting

Noooo!! Don't talk to me about grey!! (Grabs nearest object big enough to cover head and hide hair!)... But DO talk to me about those colours on your card! It's lovely. You're right.. It's a great stamp. Wonder if the birthday fairy might leave me one.. ? Hmmm.. Now there's a thought... Off to find my wishlist.. ;o)
