So for my Penny Black piece I had to go with my all time favorite Penny Black stamp 2695J Dance, Sing, Love along with two favorites from the 2014 Spring releases 4373K Red Tango and 40-282 Twirls, although as you can see my Poppies are blue so I figure they must be the Himalayan variety which are the National flower of the Kingdom of Bhutan which is a land locked Country sitting at the far eastern end of the Himalaya's..........so endeth today's Geography lesson !! The background is Dylusions and Glimmer Mist, a bit of bleaching here and there and a touch of grunge paste and decoupaged Poppies.
Although I rarely enter challenges these days, I have been wanting to join in with Mrs A's new Butterfly Challenge who this time have the theme of Butterfly Bingo and I have gone with the the row, butterfly, wet embossing and flowers.
This one is a rather tenuous link to this months Stamping Sensations theme....two very tiny birds in the sky and butterflies on the embossed panel - not strictly animals I know, but I did want to share a card using a Crafty Individuals stamp as they are our sponsors this month.
My second Stamping Sensations piece is a collection of stamps from Lavinia.......the larger than life bunnies to the fore...... plus some Inkylicious, Sutter and Stampscapes and good old Pan Pastels for all the colouring.
Have a good weekend everyone, hope the sun is making an appearance for you.
