Midmonth at Penny Black and More Challenge

Today we're sharing our midmonth creation at the Penny Black and More challenge blog, reminding you that there is still a little time to join us! Our theme is "Going Round in Circles". As usual, we have some wonderful prizes again and I hope you had a chance to join us, but if not there are still a couple of weeks left to play along! And remember you may enter up to 3 times for more chances to win!


I thought this cute stamp set was perfect to use for our "circles" challenge! The chicks are all from the Penny Black set "Chick to Chick", it's an older set but I found it HERE on Amazon and it ships free with a $25 order. I am still having fun with my  Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils and using the layering and burnishing technique. A few weeks ago I had asked on Instagram comparing two images (a pencil colored one and a copic colored one) and most people preferred the pencil coloring. So I am continuing working with pencils and learning color combinations etc. I know I could just use mineral spirits or baby oil, but I prefer the layering technique more, even though it takes longer to complete.

These chicks have all been fussy cut using my Cutterbee scissors. Some  Wink of Stella glitter was brushed over the flowers.
The striped paper is an old one (but favorite) from Stampin up. I've been hoarding it long enough and it was perfect for this spring card. Sentiment is an old wood mounted one by Penny Black, stamped with Versafine Claire Nocturne ink. I tied some striped twine around the card to finish it off. Card base is Stampin Up's kraft card stock.
