Penny Black Saturday Challenge (May 2019)

Hello there. It's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge and the theme is *ANYTHING GOES* or *MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND*.

I've been busy finalising plans for the second phase of our renovation, so I haven't been crafting for a few weeks and lost my MOJO, but I sat down today and challenged myself to create without too much thought:)

I decided to go monochrome, but moved away from my usual blues and greens. I sponged some distress inks on white card-stock and spritzed. Then I sponged Fossilised Amber D.I. and Gold Glitz through the PB stencil. Next I stamped the butterfly and coloured with the same distress inks and blended with clear Wink of Stellar.  I fussy cut the butterfly. To finish I stamped the sentiment and mounted the panel on a black card base. 

You can get more inspiration from the talented PBSC Design Team at our blog and we'd love to have you join in the fun.
