I love Penny Black but just wish they could be made in the UK as I wish House-mouse could too as I really like to try and buy British, so I don't have a lot of either of these type of stamps.
It's not that I'm against others I just tend to buy British and as I haven't done any crafting for quite a while I probably don't have many new trendy stamps but I love the ones I have.
I wanted to enter the Penny Black challenge and when going through my stash found 2 sheets of Stickeroos I had , can't remember if I won them or bought them from a craft show but either way they were new and I thought it was time I broke into them so to speak. I used this cute hedgehog carrying a bunch of 8 daisy type flowers along with some other flowers. I love daisy type flowers and as I had them for my wedding bouquet and married in August they are very special and remind me of happy summer days.
I added green patterned paper to a white base card and matted a docrafts daisy paper over that as the base for my card. The Penny Black challenge that inspired me was hot summer colours and as I look in my somewhat overgrown garden I still see fushias shocking pink and crocosmos orange showing through the green of the overgrown grass. I stuck to these colours and added a pink peel-off sentiment which I added to the die-cut I stuck the Stickeroo on.
The orange I highlighted by using ribbon which I actually took from a box of goodies from a well known mobile telephone company when my son had a phone from them a few phones across. I can't take credit for the bow as it came ready tied.
The layout of the card I actually quite like though wasn't sure at first and its a sketch from Tuesday morning sketches.
To finish the card I added a further Stickeroo , I have to admit I tend to neglect the inside of my cards and really ought to pay them more attention but as I don't tend to be an overly fussy clutter person this might be a tall order for me.
