I've been playing with my new Penny Black Bashful die and co-ordinating Blush stamp. The die isn't meant to fit the stamp exactly, but they complement each other.
I've used the sketch from this week's CAS(E) This Sketch:
Penny Black's Beat the Heat challenge is still open:
And the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for August is BRIGHT AND SUNNY, with prizes on offer:
I dusted a piece of white card with Distress Inks - Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Brushed Corduroy - then spritzed the piece with water and blotted the excess off. I coloured the stamp with Tombow markers and stamped it directly onto the piece. Then I cut the die shape from watercolour paper and coloured it with the same markers and fixed it over the stamped image. I stamped the sentiment on a spare piece of watercolour paper, punched 2 holes and threaded cord through and around the back of the piece, then mounted it onto the cardstock.

Neat and Tangled are celebrating their first birthday with a month-long birthday bash (now that's my kind of birthday!). And I'll be joining in the celebrations as a guest designer on one of the days! But don't wait around for me, get over there now because there are giveaways to be had throughout the month. See you over there!
