Penny Black challenge...week 176


Sorry for the lack of posts over the past week but we had 3 days away down in Devon which was lovely...when we got back I needed to make cards and little gifts for my craft fair which was yesterday so just had no time at all to blog....
Back to the Penny Black challenge which this week is 'Christmas/Snowflakes snow and Silver' I am not very happy with my card as it looks dirty!! I edged the glittered snowflake vellum with a Brilliance Silver pad and for some reason it looks a bit vintage around the edge...but also the light is so bad today, my image is one of my favourite snowmen from the Penny Black 'Jolly Friends' stamp sheet, he's coloured with copics.  Dies used are Nestie and Cuttlebug Snowflake.  S.U. Punches also used and I added 3 little pearls for the mistletoe berries.
This is also another busy week for me but hopefully I shall be back with another card tomorrow....fingers crossed.

That is indeed a really cute snowman and a lovely card. I'm sure the silver edging looks much better in reality than on the scan.

This is quite lovely Anne, it doesn't look dirty at all, it just looks Vintagy as you said. Love the Penny Black images & this one all done up in silver with the finishing touch of several little pearls. I'm still working but will be home in a couple of days & will get your long awaited package off to you.
Hugs, Janie
