Penny Black Sweet Talk


I colored all  these images with this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge #92 in mind.  The challenge this week is to use springy colors. I hope you are not sick of this wonderful Stampin Up Cottage Wall DP. It is so pretty and it goes a looooonggg way! I made this mini album with it too, and I still have at least half of it left!

I have had this Sweet Talk Penny Black stamp forever and it has not ever seen ink...it was time... and makes a sweet card set as well!

I have not stamped much over the last couple of weeks, just no drive, but today I spent the whole afternoon making these cards. I find if I see some good sketches, that seems to get me motivated to pop up into my stamp room. I did manage to clean it up a wee bit so I could find room to stamp...my goodness it does get messy fast.  I will list the sketch challenges I used under each card.



I actually had to change this sketch up a wee bit as my main bunny image wasn't the the full length of the card and I liked the way it turned out after I added that bit on the bottom.

I am working on a little Gwamma brag book to carry in my purse. Nothing fancy schmancy, but I never seem to have pictures of my grandsons with me when someone asks..how bad is that? I hope to finish it up in the next day or two and then will show you that this week as well.

So cute Sue! You seem to have your drive back!?

Curt in Carmel said...

Boy you are right! This makes a darling card set. Your coloring is so wonderful, and the colors and papers you used are so rich and beautiful. Love the sentiment treatment popping out from the sides of the images. I have to keep that in mind. I always use such large images, I never know where to put the sentiment so I leave it for the inside. This gives me another option! Great stuff! Best, Curt

Marion said...

Wow! These are all fabulous cards. You did very well to get all those done. Your colouring is fabulous.
