Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Sentiment Only!

Thank you to everyone who took part last week in the sparkle challenge! This week the challenge is Sentiment only! Use any Penny Black sentiment you wish, but the only catch is that you can't use an image... tricky!! There is a gorgeous stamp up for grabs this week kindly donated by Tracie so why not take part, you just might get lucky!!

Well here is my effort this week! It's not my usual style but I thought I would go for a classic looking card, the photos are not too good, in real life it's really pretty but my camera just hated the black and pink!! I decided to do some triple thick embossing with the sentiment, I used a piece of stampbord and Debbi Moore embossing powder. My tip for triple thick embossing is ink after every layer, I tried just sprinkling powder onto the wet layer but inking again works wonders!! The sentiment is from the 'bubbly' Penny Black clear stamp set.



Here are some more views of the card, it helps to show the triple thick embossing a bit more.
Don't worry, I'll be back with cute again real soon! (I don't think these kinds of cards suit my style lol!!)

Love Becky xx
