Saturday 15 May 2021


 It's the 3rd Saturday of the month, so we have more inspiration for you at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. The theme is 'ANYTHING GOES' or the optional twist is 'CAS Cards'.

First I made a smooshed background with Karin Markers and then lined it up with the window and stamped the foliage. Next I stamped the butterflies on the background and again on more card, colouring them with Karin Markers and fussy cutting.

Stamps: Penny Black Butterfly Garden
Dies: Mft Peekaboo windows; SSS Sentiment  dies

You can see more inspiration from our talented Guest Designer, Bunny and the rest of the DT at our blog. I hope you have the opportunity to join in our challenge.

The prize for this challenge is provided by our generous sponsor:

Prize - $20 voucher!

If you'd like to be considered for a guest designer spot for a future challenge, please add 'GDT' after your name on the link-up...and remember to check back to see if you've been chosen!
