Penny Black 12


Saturday already? That could only mean that it’s time for this week’s Penny Black Saturday Challenge and Challenge 12 is Stars & Stripes. As always it’s entirely up to what you make – card, atc, altered art, etc… as long as it features at least one Penny Black image.

This week the prize is sponsored by Funky Hand, it’s their latest download Minty Madness. To be in a chance to win just leave a comment over at PBSC Blog with a link to your work and your name will be added to the draw. The winner will be announced next Saturday on the PBSC Blog.


For this challenge I thought about making a red, white and blue card with stars and stripes… it just seems weird making an Independence Day card in August. In my stash I came across this CTMH Reflection Kit, Good Times, that contained designer paper with stripes and another with stars that coordinated… how great is that? The image is On a Star, from Penny Black. I stamped the star onto Buttercup cardstock, cut it out and then adhered it to the original stamped imaged… I wanted my yellow star to match the Buttercup stripes in the designer paper.

Thanks for stopping by ~ Jovi
