Penny Black Saturday Challenge is Summer Loving, so in my eyes you need a couple in my case mice and the flower of summer is roses.
So I've chosen my stamp and then I chose the pattern rose paper which because my image is so large you can't actually see it and it was then my problems began because the papers were grungy.
First off I had to tone down the white, so out came the blending tool with the distress inkpads ( they're coming out of the drawer far too often for my liking).
I didn't have any roses the colour of the rose I had coloured so I had to use white and distress then a bit so they're weren't so white against the paper.
Bits of greenery, ribbon and a few pears, card finished.
DT with their gorgeous creations too.
