Whiskers and/or wings at Penny Black & More

The theme this month at Penny Black & More challenge is Whiskers and/or wings so I chose as the main image a stamp from the Penny Black critter party set. The DT got to use some stamps from one of our sponsors Flonz stamps so I chose to use waves from the borders vintage set for the background stamping and the greeting is from the Best Wishes sentiment set.

I stamped the PB image and then inked through the nestie, mounting it onto a doilie, and added some watercolour pencils for the detailing. I used a Flonz border on either side of the image and then created a background paper from the same border and embossed it with a folder. I cut a strip from this to form a border further down the card. Added some butterflies using a MS punch. I then randomly stamped the border again over the cardstock to create the overall background effect.

I do hope you can join us this month to share your Whiskers/and or wings projects, just remember no digis!

Good morning Lynn,

A really lovely card for this month's theme, clever combination of all the stamps and liking the soft colours.

Have a lovely Sunday.
