Saturday, September 27

I know it's a lovely summery day but ...

PB Winter  I chose winter as my season for this week's Penny Black challenge.

I bought this fabulous stamp at the Stamporama exhibition in Stevenage recently  ... and the poor things have been shut in a drawer ever since!

I have used white embossing powder on the background snowflakes ... and then blended Broken China distress ink over the top.

The cute little hedgehogs were embossed in black before I coloured them in using a mixture of Derwent aqua tones and distress inks and pens.
