Penny Black challenge

No post yesterday I am afraid, it was normal manic Monday at work, it started off quiet but didn't last and I was still at my desk at 7pm and so far Tuesday's not looking much better. And the weather is dry, dull and cold so no incentive to go very far even if time permits.

Did manage to get a card done to share which is for this weeks Penny Black challenge using a quite unusual sketch which I have combined with Passion for Promarkers using the requisite colours of Poppy and Forest Green which to me yells Christmas. I think my penguins also fit this weeks challenge at Creative Card Crew which is "Babies and Children".

The penguin image stamped with versafine back and embossed with detail clear and coloured with the two Promarker colours is Art Impression T3055 - I don't seem to have too many stamps where the image is vertical as required in the sketch. So my Penny Black images are the scrolls on the circle using Penny Black 2636K and the sentiment from PB 30-036.

The DP is one of the double sided sheets from the scrummy new K & Co peppermint Twist 12x12 pad. The penguins and star have been liberally glittered and the tree baubles diamond glazed.
