Having begun to explore how to incorporate the Pergamano techniques into my stamping & colouring I was quite thrilled to discover that the theme for this week's posts on the Penny Black blog is "Cardmaking with Vellum" where Kathy Racoosin features various techniques using vellum with Penny Black stamps. As a consequence this week's Penny Black Reader Challenge is to use vellum in a Penny Black stamped project. My card also fits the themes on the other two Penny Black Challenges plus Bunny Zoe's monthly challenge for February.
Stamp Penny Black Garden Friends.
