Party With Penny Black

It’s a “Party with Penny!”  You’re invited to join in the fun as Penny Black celebrates the release of their newest collection of stamps and dies, Timeless.  
And what better way to party than a blog hop!
You should have arrived here from Mayline Jung
   If you want to start the hop from the beginning, you can go to the Penny Black blog for a complete list of all of the blog hop participants.   
I just love everything Penny Black so it was super hard to decide what to do for this blog hop as there are so many amazing dies and stamps and I had so many ideas for them all. So in the end I decided to go with a clean and simple design for my first card and the allotment inspired for my second!
The card was created using (40-688) Soft Spoken cling stamp and the (30-547) Grateful Sentiments stamp set, which has a fabulous selection of sentiments to choose from. All the new Timeless Products are now available in the Penny Black Online Store.  


The flower was stamped onto Strathmore Toned Grey Sketch paper using ink on 3 fadeout ink, then coloured using Chameleon Color Tone Pencils #'s1,2,8,9 and 21, the sentiment was then stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Tip :- when colouring with pencils place a small white highlight in first and then work out from this getting darker to get variation in tone and dimension.





The boot was stamped onto Strathmore Toned Grey Paper using Ink on 3 fade out ink and coloured with Chameleon Colour Tone Pencils #'s 1, 2, 3,4, 7, 20, 22 and 25, it was then die cut using the matching die, The background diamond pattern was die cut from brown card and mounted along with the boots onto a white linen card blank, the sentiment was cut from foam and then linen card, layered and added to the card design to finish.

And it wouldn’t be a party without a giveaway; right?  Penny Black is giving away a $50 shopping spree to the Penny Black online store to FIVE lucky winners.  To enter, leave a comment on any blog hop post (this one included). The giveaway closes on Sunday, March 10 at 11:59 PM PST and winners will be announced on the Penny Black blog on March 18.
And now... keep hopping! Your next visit is Milla
