The Penny Black Reader Challenge this week is to create a card based on a TEAL, ORANGE & PURPLE colour scheme. I've used the stamp that I received when my name was picked from commenting on the Penny Black Blog although I did remove the antennae as I thought Mimi was better without them for this construction inspired by Joanne Wardle's Craft Stamper April 2011 Floating Fronts project (page 52). I had a few false starts (binned) using sketches prior to settling on this card format this morning so between a trip to Cardiff for some Apple computer training last Friday (I shall be moving my blog to Apple's iWeb/MobileMe) & the Chepstow Artstamps South Wales Craft Show yesterday plus my head misbehaving with a cluster of migraines I've ended up getting this done just before the deadline.
