Hollyhocks



We are looking for Fancy Folds at Allsorts this week, a theme selected by our very own Wendy. Our sponsors are PPR Papercrafts and Eureka Stamps.


Also a heads up that it's our 5th Birthday at Allsorts in a fortnight and as you might guess we are going to celebrate, more details closer to the time but meanwhile here is our Blog Hope logo and we would be so happy if you would grab it for your blogs to help us spread the word.

So for my card I used the scoreboard to create the stepper card, stamped the beautiful new Penny Black Hollyhock image and coloured in with Wink of Stella pens and inked a stencil randomly in the background. A computer generated sentiment, some lace and DP from stash.

Paula (PEP) said...

Your stencilled background looks so effective with those hollyhocks & I'm impressed by how the Wink of Stella pens perform. Your lace across the bottom of the stepper adds lovely texture & I like the way the die-cut framing of the image panel has elements echoed by your stencilled background.
Much love
