Penny Black Saturday Challenge 12

I love this challenge blog - in fact it's all the fabulous blogs by DT members and challengers that has inspired me to set up my own blog! I've been entering the challenge right from the beginning, but as I didn't have my own blog, Tracie has very kindly been uploading my projects each week - thankyou!

Well, on to this weeks challenge, and the theme is 'Stars & Stripes'. After rumaging through my Penny Black stamp collection, I discovered that I only had one stamp (Cat on the moon) with a star on it, so that became my starting point. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and used some pearly paints on the moon and stars, and mounted it with my new Nestabilities. The striped element is the paper by DCWV (Glitter Mat Stack), and I finished it all off with a few confetti stars, and a silver embossed sentiment (from Penny Black 'Party Critters' set).

Hope you like it!

What a stunning card Helen - love this stamp (another for my wish list LOL!) and love the way you have used it with the glittery paper and black/silver colours.
