Penny Black October Sketch Challenge

I have been busy all week working & teaching classes at the recent Melbourne Craft & Sewing Show, that I've only just managed to get my entry for the Penny Black October Sketch Challenge made today, with just a few hours to spare!

3989K joyeux noel
Having just gotten a set of Spellbinders Shapeabilities Holiday Tags dies, I really wanted to have a play with them and decided to use them on my Sketch card (see the challenge sketch here). To make this card, I stamped Penny Black 3989K joyeux noel on yellow, red, mauve & lime green cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using the Holiday Tags, I diecut portions of the image, and holding the die still in place, sponged distress inks in co-ordinating colours onto each tag. The ornament tags were then layered onto various cardstock with foam tape, and a gold twine bow added to each tag. Seasons greetings from Penny Black 30-018 crystalline was stamped on yellow card with tuxedo black ink, punched out using McGill Vintage Label punch, and lightly distressed around the edges.
