Anything goes at Penny Black & More challenge

Happy New Year to everyone and I wish you all a wonderful 2017.

It's time for our new challenge at Penny Black & More. We've made it nice and easy for you with "Anything goes" - just be sure to make a stamp the focal point of your card and no digis, otherwise it's a free reign.

As always there are fabulous prizes up for grabs - this time from Penny Black, Crafty ribbons and Tattered Lace.

For my DT card I used Penny Black Patisserie and Uptown stamp sets with the greeting from Hot rod. I started by stamping the houses and masking them off then making a sky with pan pastels and then used aqua tints for the remainder of the background. The Patisserie stamp I stamped separately and mounted onto the card. I used coloursoft pencils to colour everything.

Thanks for looking and hope to see you at the Challenge blog.

Happy New Year Lynn, I hope it's a good one. What a great card to kick off the new year, so bright and cheerful. I love the colourful houses, they remind me of Balamory which I have to watch several times each week with my two year old Granddaughter, she loves it! I'm just looking at my crafting stuff and wondering where to start, so thank you for a nice and easy 'Anything Goes'challenge which I hope to join you in. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
