Penny Black Challenge

Well girls, here's my effort! Not that I can win the prize of course but hey, I don't think it's too bad. I made a 3D pyramid card as the base (1) (see tutorial coming soon) , then used some pretty blue background paper (2). I then used the 'It's your Day' Penny Black stamp (3) which I coloured using blendable pencils and highlighted with a white gel pen (thanks Katharina). I then added an adhesive fabric flower (bottom right) with a metal charm tied with ribbon, and then added three colour coordinated flowers which I attached to the card with various sized brads (4). I will add another picture from another angle in a moment so that you can see the full pyramid effect. What d'ya think??? Hope your efforts are going according to plan, looking forward to seeing what you all come up with, perhaps we can offer some other types of inspiration??? Good luck, Fae xxx

OMG - THAT card certainly has the WOW factor doesn't it! I'm hiding my effort from last night now! I've only cut it out so far but can't see how I'm gonna add b/g paper to it. Right . . . PLAN B tonight then!

AWWWW shucks, thanks hon. I have to admit, I AM very pleased with it. Didn't think I had it in me to be honest with you but I'm certainly glad I used my inspiration jar to set this challenge. It's got my creative juices flowings and I can't stop now... I bet your first attempt would've been great, maybe I should've kept my creation back from you for a little while and then maybe you would have persevered with it???

Gosh Fae what a great card, you're too clever for words and I agree with Sarn my efforts are nothing compared.
