Uplifting


The postman lifted my day when he delivered this little stamp from Penny BLack, called "Uplifting Occasion". It has been around for a few years now and every time I saw it, I liked it - so now with my new found passion for all things rubber I decided I had to have it. Although there are so many fabulous rubber stamps out there it is so hard to decide what to have.
The photo isn't very good - but I've layered the bra with lilac gingham card and inserted a scrap of lilac lace behind each cup and also on the top of the knickers. I also added some pastel green Papermania gems and a little bead flower. The base image was stamped in black staz-on and just pencil coloured. I'm really happy with this - it is so cute, the only thing I'd criticise is I need to improve the colouring on the cat's fur, not very good at getting a layered coloured look and was afraid if I added more colour I'd make a mess of it. So this is one stamp that I think will be well used!

Gorgeous Card. I love Peny Black stamps,that one is gorgeous. I don't think I've seen a Penny Blac yet that I didn't like. Great job with the card and adding the lace is a great touch, keep up the great work!!!
