Penny Black Poppy

Evening Everyone, thanks for stopping by.
Hasn't it been a wonderfully sunny day. I obviously picked the right one to take off from my real job to teach a class on making roses.
The ladies all seemed to have a great time, and the colour combinations were just stunning. Isn't it amazing just how different our colour choices can be. I always tend to stick to 'safe' colour combos when prepping a class and it is always great when people choose something completely different to what I have chosen.
The card I am sharing tonight is made with what has to be my favourite Penny Black stamp at the moment. I feel in love with it even before I saw some of the stunning cards that Brenda has made with it. (http://stamping-fantasies.blogspot.com/)
The background on which the image has been stamped has been created using pearl Silkies and bundled sage and wild honey distress inks. This has co-ordinated beautifully with papers from my stash.
I am actually sending this card to the Girls at Butterfly Kisses - I promised it to them at Ally Pally so I had better get it in the post asap. Besides I am back at work tomorrow so I need to get some sleep. Sorry about the picture quality, I think I really do need to invest in a better camera, the card looks so much better than the pictures make out.
Nite nite and thanks for looking in.
Love Kimx

  1. Hi Kim,
    Stunning card. Love the colour combo. Have so far resisted buying this PB stamp as I have loads of floral images, but...

    I was at Ally Pally on the Saturday, but didn't know you were there otherwise I would have stopped by and said hello. Ally Pally has to be my fav show, but ArtStamps is a close second. The NEC is just way too big and the tickets are expensive too.

    Hugs, Pauline x
