Penny Black meets Friday Sketch Challenge!
It's too long since I've joined in at Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This week's theme is Christmas + Red and Embossing.
I love this little Penny Black mouse, all snug in his stocking! I coloured him with Speccies and stickled the fur trim of the stocking. The spots are gold liquid pearls.
The fab papers were free with this month's 'Cardmaking and Papercraft' and they are gorgeous! I embossed the mistletoe strip with a snowflakes folder and my cuttlebug, then lightly sanded to make the snowflakes stand out better. The two strips of ribbon are from stash.
The gold corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts, the chipboard snowflake is by Woodware and I covered it with gold Glamour Dust, then put it on a large Magnolia doohickey flower die-cut. The swirl is a Marianne die. The sentiment is LotV, stamped in Fired Brick Distress Ink and mounted on gold holographic paper.
The sketch is from Friday Sketch Challenge, though I don't think I've done it justice, I think my image is a bit too small, but we live and learn!
Well, it's time to start cooking the fish 'n' chips and then clear up the midden that is my craft hovel. Again!!!
Have a good evening and thanks for looking!
love MagsB x
