Friday Sketchers and PBSC



Look, it's another Christmas card! Well, I do love these cute Penny Black Christmas Critters! I'm entering the Penny Black Saturday Challenge with this.

'But the PB challenge is to use more than one PB stamp,' I hear you cry! 'Where oh where is the second one?'

It's the music background! It's from the Clearly in Love set. I stamped it several times in a row, embossed it in black, and sponged with Tea Dye and Antique Linen to age it. I'm ridiculously pleased with how it looks!

I went round the image with Broken China Distress Ink, brushing rather than distressing to give a rough-and-ready frame to the little mice.

The sketch is a lovely one from Friday Sketchers, nice and simple and ideal for the man I've made it for, who sings in our Church choir.

The bp is from stash - might be Papermania - and has the words of various carols and Christmas songs printed on it, though it's not awfully clear. I used Promarkers (surprise!) and stickles, stickles everywhere!

Ok, it's lunch time (already!) Time for cheese on toast, methinks, since it's a grey day and I need comfort food!

Thanks for looking and have a good day.

luv, Mags x

Recipe: Promarkers: Satin, Vanilla, Coral, Pastel Pink; Lipstick Red, Crimson; Ice Grey 2, Cool Grey 4; Cocoa, Tulip Yellow; Pastel Blue

Ooh this is lovely! Great used of the music stamp too, I always find accessory stamps hard to use, and I love the tea stained vintage look!
Thanks for joining in with the Penny Black Saturday challenge!

Love Beth xx
