Penny Black - Uplifting!!!!


Well I figured what the heck I've been showing some of my previous cards and this has to be one of my favorites coz it was so much fun to make! I already knew what I was going to do with this one even before I received the stamp!!! LOL
I adore this Penny Black stamp and could just imagine my cat doing this!!!! Too funny! Anyway, this one was colored with prismacolor pencils and the undies and hankie were embossed to make them all shiny!! I cut out and raised the image to make it look like they were hanging on a washing line! It was a little time consuming cutting all the bits out but I love how it turned out! I think the colors made the image stand out and of course I had to show the inside too!! I finish all the insides of my cards to coordinate with the outside, don't like to leave them blank!

Card recipe
DP - Best occasions
Stamp - Penny Black - Uplifting
Scalloped edging - Martha Stewart edge punch
Ribbon - Michael's (I think)

These posts are going to get shorter coz I am writing them all in one shot!!! See you all when I get back!
Hugs,
Charlotte
