Penny for your thoughts


Happy Hump Day!

I've had this cute Penny Black image from Eclectic Paperie since last year. I actually received another Penny Black image from them and I'll be posting that for tomorrow.

I colored the main image using Basic Brown and Brocade Blue classic ink and added a pink mini paper flower. The silver brad is covered with Dazzling Diamond and layered it with Basic Brown card stock, all four corners are punched using ticket corner punch. The background is a Brocade Blue card stock. I was trying a new technique that was posted this week at Splitcoast Stampers, where you ink the negative side of the Cuttlebug folder, and this is what I got. I was not really happy with it but this will do... for now. Ribbon is from Making Memories and sentiment is from a Studio G $ stamps from Michael's.

Also, don't forget to leave a comment here if you want a chance to win some goodies from me. You have until tomorrow, 8:00 p.m. EST.
