The current challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts is "Shape Up", which means any shape goes as long as it's not a square or a rectangle.
I originally bought a set of Spellbinders Labels 11 with the intention of making a shaped card just like this but never got around to it, so this challenge is the perfect excuse to get on and do it. I think I thought that the card wouldn't acutally stand up, but it does (see photo further down for proof).
I have used two Penny Black stamps on this card, the first is Foliage 3642K. I have used this to stamp a random background on the yellow card. I stamped using Versamark Dazzle "Champagne" ink and brushed Perfect Pearls in "Heirloom Gold" over the top.
The second stamp is the sentiment which is a new one from Penny Black called "Special Time" 4174H. Again, I stamped this using Versamark Dazzle "Champagne" and brushed over with "Heirloom Gold" Perfect Pearls. I've finished off with a flower and some pearls.
Here's another photo to show how nicely the card stands up.
Penny Black at Allsorts are having a DT call combined with their current challenge and I am going to put my name down, wish me luck!
