Penny Black 5

This week’s Penny Black Saturday Challenge is a Sketch Challenge… my favorite kind of challenge! I have a terrible time trying to come up with a layout. There are times that I sit and rearrange my layout over and over until I think I have it, only to rearrange it once again.

For this challenge I use the image Message from Above. All the patterned paper and cardstock is from Close to My Hearts Reflection Kit Let’s Get Together… which I’ll have to order again. It is my favorite Reflection Kits and I only have a few sheets of the designer paper left. The image was colored using Prismacolor Pencils blended with Gamsol. I added a touch of Yellow Stickles to the flower centers… I rarely use the colored Stickles and I think that may change because I like the way the Yellow Stickles made the flowers sparkle compared to using Diamond or Crystal Stickles like I would have normally used.

I’m looking forward to seeing all the wonderful cards of those who participated in this week’s challenge. Thanks for visiting. ~ Jovi
