Penny Black Saturday Challenge.


A new challenge blog started this week, and one of the design team is my good friend Jacqui. I did not have any Penny Black Stamps, so I brought this little one called 'Field of Dreams', and it arrived from Glitter Pot this morning. (Also in the same post Jane kindly sent me some stamped images - thank you).
The theme of the weeks challenge was - We would like to see you using your first Penny Black Stamp that you brought. You can make a card, atc, alterted art, etc.. what ever you wish but it must include your first stamp.
Well this is my first stamp. The papers are dovecraft - I tend to liek using plain backing papers for male cards - don't ask me why, but I have fauxed stitched around to give it more definition rather than using black borders. The image has been watercoloured and the message is from my sticker stock.
Hope you like it x
