Penny Black Saturday Challenge- Huggin'


I made this cute little card for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge #40- A sketch.

I love this stamp...it is so versatile...the feathery circle is make by Fiskars and is one of their circle punches...I have had this a long time and got it specifically to use with my feathered friends! It is an easy sketch this week, so I could jump in and make a quick card without having to think too hard!

I punched the feather circle and then chalked it with some SU! chalk just to give it a little color. I then set my feathered friends up on dimensionals on top of the circle. This image was colored with my SU! markers and the grey highlights are Radiant Pearls-Abalone grey. I love the shimmer of this stuff and again, I have had it a long time.

The chicken wire stamp is a retired SU! background stamp.

That is so effective. I love that punch from, I wonder why it was on special, I would have thought most people would want it and it would be out of stock not on special. Love the card.
