Penny Black Challenge - Anything Goes

This is the first time in ages that I am joining in with the Penny Black Challenge Blog... I really fell out of love with my Penny Black stamps.. But suddenly had a "light bulb" moment. With my God-Mother's Birthday coming up, I wondered what I could use and remembered i had the stamp "Constellations" so off I went to rummage...

The layout is based ona sketch from another blog. I slightly adapted it and this is the card I created....


Colour scheme is gold, navy & kraft. The edging of each layer (if you please) has been stitched as well. The ribbon, you can just make out, has a tiny strip of gold on it so ties in beautifully. 

The image itself has been stamped but I've added colour using some promakers. Usually I keep the image clean or add pearls, but I think using colour works just as well. Added some big corner peel-offs to add more detail.

Thanks for popping by :)
