Penny Black and More - June mid-month reminder

Just a reminder that the Penny Black and more June challenge is still running and you have a few more weeks to enter this challenge which is .....

Blooms, Butterflies and Bugs.
Our sponsors are 
with these lovely prizes.

"My name is Suha and I have created Swedish House Crafts in the second part of 2016. It is a little Swedish online shop with lots of enthusiasm for crafting in a different style, dare to be different. Visit SHC and learn more. I have been professionally crafting since 2008, I gave colouring classes (with Promarkers) in Sweden, had exhibition in 2014, and used to make cards and mixed media mainly. I have a master degree in digital and visual design. Yes, 100% of graphics in the shop are my artwork including the logotype. Because I am not leaving my education, I am using it in my passion for paper crafting in the first place. Great combination as the future is full of plans and surprises, hold on and follow SHC on Facebook and blog, you'll find SHC everywhere."

I have used the Penny Black image 40-513 Burst of Blooms

The papers are once again LOTV
The flowers have been paper pieced with some Craftwork Cards papers but the centre of the flowers and the outer sections have been coloured over with Promarkers.
I used a small corner punch for the card and all the papers.

The Penny Black stamp that is on offer as one of this months prizes is the same set of stamps that my first card for this month was taken from

Thank you for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

beautiful card Kath, love the papers and your floral stamp, paper piecing and touching up parts of the stamped area adds such depth to it.

Kath, you have the most fabulous floral stamps, this one is beautiful and perfect for paper piecing, which you've done expertly of course. Lovely clean design and pretty colour choice too!
