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
