Penny Black Blog Hop

(Please note, this is my second post for today.  To see my Fun Friday Collabo post with Darlene, scroll down.)
In honor of Penny Black's newest collection, the Penny Black designers are sharing projects and inspiration with the new stamps!
take a peek
Not only are we hopping, we're giving away stamps, too!  Leave a comment on each blog, including the Penny Black blog, for a chance to win a selection of these brand new stamps. To begin the hop from the start and for a complete list of all blogs involved, visit the Penny Black blog HERE.

For my card I stamped Penny Black 40-238 Floral Applique and colored it with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art Grip Color Pencils and then added just a touch of grey for dimension using Copic markers C1 and C3.

I adhered several small pieces of Penny Black Mix and Match cardstock to create the rainbow strip and then added bit of Distress Paint onto the edges.
