mid month reminder for Penny Black & More challenge - Stencil/masks/embossing folders


Just popping in to give you a reminder for our challenge at Penny Black & More where this month the theme is Stencils/masks/embossing folders. You can use all three or just one - it's up to you and it doesn't have to feature Penny Black products. If you want to be considered for the GDT spot then you do need to use a Penny Black stamp.
We have some fab prizes as always - so I'll see you there with your creation.
Just no digis please- we say this all the time, but still have entries that are not eligible because a digi has been used.
For my DTcard I used San Francisco 40-117 from Penny Black. Whilst I had the stamp down on the paper I lightly ran around the outline of the stamp and then cut it out. I teamed it with an embossing folder from Crafters companion on some dotty paper which I sanded back slightly. I coloured my image with aqua markers and then found some paper in my snippet box for the tattered lace die cut sentiments which toned perfectly.

Clever use of the PB stamp Lynn, it's one on my wish list still, never quite got there on trips to the States.

Have a good Sunday.
