Get Ahead For Christmas

It's already September and time for a new challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts. This month our guest designer is the talented Doreen, please pay her a visit and spread some love.

Brenda has chosen a very apt theme for us; Get Ahead For Christmas. Don't we all need to stock cards for the Season!?

Just remember that you have to use a Penny Black stamp or Stickeroo as your focal image to be eligible for one of our fantastic prizes. We have a set of Aqua Markers from Letraset and Penny Black goodies!

I've created a little scene with Berry Branch and Simple Scroll in black ink and snowflakes from the Crystalline set in white ink.

The background is made with Distress inks and Stampscape stamps and masks on glossy paper. Stickles and doodling with a white Uni Ball pen were added for some interest.

The sentiment is an old retired stamp cut with an oval Nestie. The blue background paper is made with Hero Arts Rain drop and Distress inks.
