Penny Black Challenge 1



This is week one of the Penny black Saturday challenge.The challenge was to create a card with the first Penny Black stamp you purchased, well could of been one of many in my collection. Its been some time since i have stamped with these beauties. I have for a change coloured with water colours and the cheap paints from the Works. The paper i have used is for the DCWV floral stack and card stock is mainly Bazzil. Have used some pearlesant card and embossed with Swiss dots CB embossing folder. The flowers are Aunties Bloomers from Sarahs Cards, a brilliant selection of flowers in the bitty bag.
