Just a note - times two

The other day I sat and coloured in some Penny Black images - and subsequently made a couple of them into notelet cards. You can never have enough of those!

Here they are:
I used:

- 5.75" x 4" white card blanks, side opening

- stamped images (I used Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink) were coloured with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and a stamp from the Penny Black 'delicate florals' set 

- the sentiment was added using the Misti, Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and a stamp from the Paper Smooches 'Sentiment Sampler' set

- then die cut the image panel using a die from the Creative Dies 'Wonky Stitches Nesting Rectangles' set of dies

- used more white card to die cut the next size up in the same set of dies - so it was just fractionally smaller than the card front. In fact, I die cut this panel first and then trimmed the card blank to suit

- glued the plain white die cut panel to the card front

- then glued the image panel on top, after backing it with white fun foam for dimension

I do love the Penny Black 'delicate florals' stamp set - so quick and easy to colour yet (IMHO) they really do stand out in a crowd :)

Edie: The lovely Brenda from Floral Fantasies hopped in and said this would fit in with the May Penny Black and More Challenge (which is Anything Goes, always a favourite) - so I'm off to link in! Wahoo, a challenge after all!

Beautiful cards with the lovely PB floral stamp Di and would fit in very nicely at our May challenge.

Apols for being such a bad blogger, NHS demands mean I'm not out and about as much as I would like and holiday next week so preparing to be done.
