Morning Peeps, time for our mid month posts at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges, I also have a couple of shares from my post over at the Chocolate Baroque DT blog a couple of days ago.
So did you get the storms and rain at the weekend? We did, it dropped 5.5inches in one afternoon resulting in two rooms flooding but we are on split levels and with some persuasion digging trenches outside it drained quickly and damage minimal. Unfortunately not the same for our daughter across the courtyard, her house sits slightly lower than ours and three of her living rooms flooded, it was like a huge paddling pool. We got some of her smaller furniture moved to the kitchen and library but it was a losing battle as the water kept coming. The insurance assessor has recommended everything needs replacing including the oak floors, skirtings and re-decoration and even the piano is being sent away for a refurb as he said black water will cause long term damage.
So onto my cards and a very lemon one at the top using stencils and Distress Inks to create the background, a Penny Black bloom called Dreamy which is a good few years old along with a new PB sentiment from Blooming Sentiments. Finally some doodling around the edge and flicks of white pen..........on the white pen front I would be interested to know which ones you find the best for 'flicking', I've got two or three but it seems difficult to get a good solid white.
My Stamping Sensations card also uses a Penny Black stamp, Distress Inks to add the colour and simply matted and layered, a quick and easy card.
You will find all details of my Chocolate Baroque shares on the DT blog, link above and the stamps from the Native American collection here and here.
Have a good week everyone.
