Anything Goes with a Sentiment for Penny Black and More - July Challenge

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by! July already, it's time for a new challenge at Penny Black and More. We're making it really easy for you this month, as it's anything goes with a sentiment. Just remember the main image  has to be hand stamped (any stamp maker clear or rubber). Penny Black stickeroos are fine to use too. 

I inked up one of the cute stamps from the set "U R the gift" from Penny Black's latest release. I do still have this set available in my Etsy stamp shop. For my sentiment I used a stamp from the set "Sprinkles and Smiles", also from Penny Black.

I colored most of the stamp using copic markers. The cat's chef coat has been paper pieced but I also added some shading with gray copics. Designer papers are all scraps from my stash. Embellished with some twine and glitter. 

If you'd like to join us in this month's challenge, simply visit this link. Once again we have some wonderful prizes to give away, and you can enter up to 3 times for more chances to win.

Products used:
U R the Gift, Sprinkles and Smiles
designer paper scraps from SU, DCWV
xpress blending card, SU card stock
twine, stickles glitter
copics for coloring

Enjoy your Sunday!!
