Penny Black 18

It’s Saturday… and this week’s Penny Black Saturday Challenge is Challenge 18 – Thanks a Bunch. For those of you that take part in the challenge, it’s entirely up to you what to make… card, atc, altered item, etc. as long as you use one Penny Black image. This week our sponsor, Tinker & Co has generously donated a download 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.

The image I used for this challenge is Hedgehog Joy and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Love Ya Bunches set. I just knew I had a “thanks a bunch” stamp that I wanted to use but I couldn’t remember which stamp set it was in… finally I found it! I used a distresser tool around all the Petal cardstock, which has a white center core. You can’t tell from the photo but I added light green Pebbles Chalk around the image and across the sentiment… it softens the white cardstock.

I’m looking forward to seeing the fabulous “thanks a bunch” cards… after visiting all the great blogs my Penny Black wish list has grown. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend creating ~ Jovi
