Are you all getting ready to settle down for an afternoon of epic tennis then? The tv is on in the "studio", as are the fans, so I'll be heading out there shortly for a craft and a watch of what could be British tennis history...
But before I do that, Penny Black Saturday Challenge have Christmas in July as their theme and I just had to take part for two reasons, I need to get on with Christmas cards and its been far too long since I used one of my beloved Penny Black stamps!
So, for this one I have stamped PB Lighting Up
Painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Twinkling H20s
Paper is from the Nitwits/LOTV Cake & Candles pad
Holographic mirri card is from stash by I think it originally came from Create & Craft
Sentiment is by Little Claire
Memory Box dies used are Festive Lights and the smaller one of Precious Snowflakes
Square crystal gems are from stash
I did the lights by running the main part of the die through with gold mirri card, and then used the bulbs part of the die with the red, blue and silver mirri card. It was a challenge to glue the individual bulbs to the string part so a steady hand and fine tweezers are recommended. I used Impex Hi-Tack Glue for this as the surfaces were shiny.
An enormous cheer has just gone up so I assume the players are now on Court ..... sees ya later!
