Blue Penny Black

Hello to you!!
I hope you've been enjoying your weekend.
I had Saturday off work,
so I got a little extra playtime,
and this is what I came up with:

I wanted to play along with Colour Create
this fortnight as their colours are blue and white,
with the added challenge of adding vintage flair.

I also plan on submitting this one in the
Penny Black Saturday Challenge
This week, they have a recipe:
3 ribbons, 2 flowers, 1 charm
I wound up adding to the recipe though,
so if I need to be disqualified,
then that's okay.

The fabulous Kellie Winnell
recently hosted a sketch challenge
on her blog and offered up some delicious
Motivet stamps as the bounty.
Unfortunately, I have missed the cutoff
by AT LEAST a day, maybe two
when you consider the time difference.
But the sketch was fab and I already had the
idea brewing, just needed the time.
I hope to see her host another sketch or challenge,
as this was very fun to use.

I have used K & Company Blue Awning papers,
a PB stamp called Fragile,
the sentiment is from a
Brenda Walton Inkadinkado clear set,
the flowers are a Bazzill/Prima combo,
lace and charm are from my stash.
Brads and blue "fiber" are Basic Grey.
I coloured with distress inks on watercolour paper.
Decided to layer colours instead of blending.
I think I like it, still deciding...

Thanks for coming by,
feel free to comment!!
