Penny Black

Over at Cute Card Thursday this week, the challenge is to use red and green. Well of course that immediately brings to mind.....Christmas!
This is my favourite Christmas card to date. I went right out of my comfort zone with the tearing of paper....but I love it! This sentiment stamp goes brilliantly with the image. Went a bit mad with my olive ink pad too....! For some reason the sticky ribbon looks wonky in the picture but not in real life - not sure why, perhaps my picture taking skills, or lack of.


The image is Penny Black 'Joy Filled Stockings' and the sentiment is Stampendous I think. The image is coloured with ProMarkers and gel pens. There is stickles on their hats. I've inked the edges of the image, sentiment and paper with an olive green Ink It Up ink pad. The image and sentiment are mounted on to silver cs - now inked to look shiny olive green. The paper is from a DCWV stack - I forget the name. And I added a few sparkly peels offs - a tree in the bottom right and some stars, plus a sticky ribbon to finish.
