This week the Penny Black Blog has been featuring watercoloured Easter projects by Elizabeth Allan who is also hosting this week's Reader Challenge. It was Saturday by the time I managed to start putting the bones of my ideas into action & by then the Penny Black Saturday Challenge theme of Pearls & Lace had been posted which somehow just incorporated itself into my design!
Stamps Penny Black 30-021 Garden Friends (images), Crafty Individuals CI-213 Crackle Background.
Inks etc.... Memento Tuxedo Black (central image), VersaMark watermark stamp pad with Stampendous Detail Gold Embossing Powder (2 side images), Scattered Straw Distress Ink (Crackle background & inking paper & some cardstock edges).
Colouring Derwent Artists Pencils with paper stumps & Sansodor, Stickles Glitter Glue (Black Diamond) for flower centres.
Cardstock An assortment of blacks & gold in various finishes from stash, Craft UK Ltd white card blank.
Paper of unknown origin purchased at local Craft Shop.
