Penny Black 14

This weeks Penny Black Challenge… Challenge 14 ~ Mans Card No Blue.

I bought this stamp (Fish Are Jumping) a couple years and have never used it to make a card so I was pretty excited when I saw this challenge. Since the challenge was to use No Blue I wasn’t quite sure what color I should use for the water. After giving the water more thought I decided to add a little light gray, pale purple and pale green… hopefully it doesn’t look murky. I then added glossy accents around the water rings.

For this week PBSC our sponsor, Sir Stampalot is generously providing a wonderful stamp to one lucky winner. For a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment over at PBSC Blog with the link to your work and your name will be added to the draw. The winner will be announced next Saturday on the PBSC Blog.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend ~ Jovi
