Pennyblack @ Allsorts - Guest Designer

At the end of July when Pennyblack at Allsorts closed their first monthly challenge and drew their winners I was lucky enough to be one and was invited to be Guest Designer for September. Thrilled to say yes just as soon as the winners were published.

The theme for September is punches, all work has to include a Pennyblack stamp and there are many to chose from and for September the use of a punch.    The stamp on this card is wood mounted 3876J Hibicus coloured with Whisper pens and stamped onto the mat and again onto more paper cut out and 3d'd onto the mat.   The mat was prepared with a MS round the edge set.    The same set used to punch both sides of the yellow bp, green bp stuck to base card.   For the longest time I've been after a leaf spray punch and finally found it a couple of weeks ago used here on scraps of the bps.   The red flowers were white but a few drops of Alcohol ink soon changed that.    Little scrap of ribbon and a few self adhesive gems to finish.

Its a good fun challenge with fabulous prizes worth popping over and playing at Pennyblack at Allsorts   There is also a DT call for additional team members another good reason to check the site if you are interested.

It dawned on me yesterday, the windmill of my mind grinds slowly sometimes, that many of you when you leave a comment have a noreply email address attached to your comment.   I try to send a thank you email to everyone but you might have been getting them.   Thank you all who takes the time to visit and leave a comment they are all appreciated.
