Penny Black

Happy New Year's Eve! I hope you all have fun tonight and stay safe whatever you decide to do :)

Penny Black have combined with Flower Soft and are having their first ever blog hop - their are some gorgeous creations, so make sure you check it out.

I love both cards by Kathy Racoosin, but her simpler version is my favourite - more my style :) I used it as inspiration for my card... flower focal image, centred sentiment, colouring/stamping on top of a pattern.


This gorgeous flower image is called Pin-striped. I stamped onto music paper and coloured with distress inks and paper pieced. The sentiment is from Jane's Doodles 'Pretty Peonies' set.

Thanks so much for looking :)
