Penny Black - No Cards Allowed
Good evening, I hope that you all had an enjoyable Bank Holiday weekend. I didn't get to post anything yesterday, another one of "those" days I'm afraid. What with attending a boot sale in the morning, shopping and housework for my Mum, helping hubby with his shop, and finally a visit from our eldest son and DIL my day had ended before I'd managed to make any cards at all. Today has been quite hectic too, but I've managed to achieve an entry for the Saturday challenge from Penny Black No Cards Allowed - I know this is a tricker one than last week, but we want you to get your thinking caps on. You can make anything you like Bag, Note Book, Box, Candle, Tag, Tin etc but NO CARD please, and your creations MUST feature at least one Penny Black Image.
I decided to make a little notebook for shopping lists as my entry for this and I used the "Shop til you Drop" stamp. I've had this for ever and haven't used it in ages, so it was a nice excuse to dig it out of the drawer. The image is coloured with the Pro-Markers again and the backing paper is from the Dovecraft range, completed with some black satin ribbon, a pink flower, some gems and "Grafitti" alphabet letters. I hope you like it, I thought it was a nice, girly book to keep in your handbag.
My apologies for the awful scan, but I tried to get a decent image for ages and this was the best I could do. I really must learn how to use the digital camera!
