Penny Blackground

Is it really Monday morning already?  Who stole my weekend?  Come on, own up!

This week over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLANGE the challenge is to make your own Penny Black background (or "Black"ground) and as I seem to be on a bit of a roll with making male cards at the moment I've made another one.


And would you look at that, another brown card!  Just loving these Basic Grey papers and am on my second pad of them.  I used the pup from a clear set to create the very simply stamped background and then the larger wood mounted version for the main image which I've painted in Distress Inks.  Some Coordinations blue card for contrast, Martha Stewart border punch for the central trim with a Hero Arts sentiment, and a hole punch for the faux brads.

Here's a close up of that devilishly handsome pup.


Hugs, Sxx
