Spoonful of Sugar and New Penny Black

Better late than never ........ had all good intentions of doing some more cards with the new Penny Black Christmas stamps freshly arrived from Sir Stampalot, but wasn't to be last evening ........ grief I must have been bad in a former life as it seems to be one thing after another. As if it's not bad enough starting the teeth/gum treatment tomorrow, last night I ended at at A&E with eye problems - they anaesthetised my eyes and say it's an infection in both eyes but assure me it has absolutely nothing to do with the eye drops they gave me during the tests yesterday morning.......hummmmmmm !

So a delayed return to playing with these new stamps which are now available for immediate dispatch from Sir Stampalot. I have incorporated this one into this weeks Spoonful of Sugar challenge which is a great sketch by Debbie.
The main image is Penny Black 3984K stamped with versamark and embossed with detail gold onto acetate. I have laid this over a piece of vellum onto which I stamped snowflakes from Penny Black crystaline set 30-018 using versamark majestic blue and embossing with iridescent powder. I have stamped the same snowflakes onto the background using the same ink and powder combination.

The DP is a piece from my stash, the diagonal border punched with Martha Stewart arched lattice and the holly cut from Cricut Christmas solutions and again inked and embossed as above.
