Penny Black and More ... November Challenge

Hello everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!

As you probably already know we had some changes over at Penny Black at All Sorts, and one of them is, that the challenge now goes live the first Sunday of each month, instead of just the first of the month.

Then in addition to that the team has decided to open the challenge up to more than just Penny Black Stamps. We will still be showcasing stamps by Penny Black, but anyone can enter the challenges as long as a rubber stamp has been used as your main focal point.

For the month of November our challenge is

All creatures great and small.

Here is what I made. I used the stamp "Mice Surprise" by Penny Black.

Isn't this stamp the cutest!!

I stamped it using black stazon and then colored with Ranger Distress inks. They are lots of fun to use, but they got me a little frustrating right now, I am either using too little or too much water...I need to practice more!


The papers are from Stampin Up. I embellished with some brads, ribbon, a flower and applied glassy glase to the snail's shell and lady bug.
The postage sentiment is from the set " Everyday mini postage stamps" by Whimsy Stamps and I cut it out using the Whimsy Stamps Shapeology mini postage die.

I would love to enter my card to the following challenges:
And that is about it for today. Be sure to check out the Penny Black and More Challenge blog (simply click logo below)

to see all the amazing prizes that are up for grabs. And don't forget: starting with this challenge, you may use any brand rubber or clear stamp to enter for one of many chances to win!!

Have a great day!!
