PBSC June - Anything Goes...Optional 'Partial Stamping'!

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...where the theme is:

'Anything Goes'
or
'Partial Stamping'
(Either by only inking and stamping part of your image, or by stamping off the edge of your project)

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

Partial stamping is a technique I like to use with some of the larger Penny Black images...it helps to make them fit better on a smaller card, and of course makes the images more versatile. The stamp I used on my card is called 'Cluck, Cluck, Cluck'...the whole stamp has four chickens on it, but as I was making this card for my Dad's birthday, I chose to mask off the chicken carrying the bouquet of flowers before I inked it...here's what the original stamp looks like:


I coloured the image using watercolour pencils to match the colours in the checked papers I was going to use...I think they're by Lawn Fawn, but I received them as part of a prize. I distressed all of the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Butterfly Birthday' set by Happy Little Stampers.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

Lifting weights and power education is an absolute necessity in relation to weight loss because it helps constructing muscle. Why is that critical? While you build muscle, your metabolism increases and allows you to burn extra calories. http://superiormusclexadvice.com
