Penny Black Hoopla!

I'm popping in with a reminder for this month's Penny Black Saturdnay Challenge.

The theme is Anything Goes or if you wish to be more challenged 'Anything But a Card'.

I made some Christmas themed hoops last year and decided to add to my collection.

I put some random fabric in the hoop and then covered it with a die cut circle of Kaisercraft designer paper. I stamped the Penny Black image on watercolour paper, coloured with distress Inks, Zig Markers and a wet brush. Then I fussy cut the image, which would be very difficult, if I didn't have my fave scissors, a gift from the lovely Jenny Dix. I added some glossy accents to the berries.
The wooden sentiment is also from Kaisercraft. 

There is more inspiration from the Design Team over at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog and we love you to join in the fun:)
