Chipboard Challenge

Two of my favourite challenge sites are hosting a Chipboard Challenge and as I had some chipboard as a freebie in a magazine, I thought it would be the perfect time to use it! Here is what I came up with......

















The flowers in the background were stamped using Penny Blacks 'Lace-edged' stamp 4154K and brilliance ink, I then added shading with prisma pencils and added some extra dots and colour  with a Marvy brush marker pen. The Chipboard (free from a magazine) was then mounted onto brown card and blue silk ribbon attached to the ends. To finish off a few pearls were added.

This card was made for the Challenges on the Casual Friday blog here and the Lily pad Cards Blog here.  If you would like to see more clean and simple designs hop on over to the Penny Black Blog this week where the design team will be sharing their CAS cards.

Thanks for visiting me today and for all your encouraging comments.
Hugs Cathy

The colours are just wonderful & I love the little ribbon ends with the pearls. Your accenting of the stamp is a lovely idea & I really like the way that bottom stamped part extends over the frame's edge.
