Penny Black And More – For The Boys

teddy sleeping in a chair with an open book and a take it easy sentiment
it’s the first sunday of march so this is my DT card for the penny black and more challenge; this month’s theme is ‘for the boys.’ i used Penny Black ‘a bear of all trades’ 30-108 and stamped it three times – once to paper piece the chair, then to cut out teddy and attach him to the chair and to cut out, colour and pop the book. i coloured with distress inks, added faux stitching and a chipboard button covered with matching paper. finally, the checked paper was made by sponging through some drywall tape.

want to play along? you can use any company’s image (just no digis) for a chance to win some fabulous prizes from sponsors Penny Black, Pretty Little Ribbons, Crimson Cloud – plus, one of the lucky participants will be a Guest Designer. visit the challenge blog for some creative inspiration from the DT and to link up – i’d love to see what you make for the boys in your life.

thanks for popping by.

  1. That cute image is certainly reflecting the sentiment Linda and the bright background really lifts the image to the fore.

    Hope you have a good Sunday.
