Penny Black card


Have you ever started out making a card and ending up creating something completely different? Well this is exactly what happened with this card. I played around with all sorts of papers and different colours of card and spent all day messing around with it. I went off it after that and am still not sure whether I like it or not. I was happy with the colours anyway and this is what I used. The papers came from my old faithful Hot of the Press pad and you can see how I have layered them out on my card using Brown, then patterned, then Pink papers. I tore the Pink piece at the bottom. The two crossing stripes were also cut from the same pad but I covered over the little flowers with some Yellow ribbon. I stamped and water coloured my Penny Black image and layered it onto the same Brown and Pink papers that I had already used. I die cut a swirly thingy with my nestability die and placed that under my image. The Pink circle says Happy Birthday round the edges but it is quite difficult to see here. This also came from the Hot off the Press pad. I put the circle onto a medium sized White flower and then put a smaller White flower on top. I attached this to my card with a Papermania flower brad which matched those that I had already placed evenly along the ribbons.

I do this all the time...but find it very frustrating spending so much time on one card! I love it when I whizz a few off and it all comes together quickly.
We are just perfectionists! It looks lovely!
