On Top Of The World…

February 7, 2011

Welcome back for another inspiration-filled week at the Penny Black Blog! Designer, Denise Marzec will be here all week with Penny Black cards. Denise frequently uses ‘white space’ on her cards to set off her Penny Black images in grand style. The white space on this card is Penny Black patterned paper; EP403 “White Hearts”. How perfect for a valentine! Denise used a Penny Black stamp; 3925H “Top of the World” and she colored the image with markers.

This leads us to our card challenge for the week – are you ready?! Create a card using white space as a primary element. Upload your entry to our Penny Circle Gallery by Midnight, PST on Sunday night. Be sure to tag your entry with “winterwhite“. A winner will be chosen to receive their choice of 3 Penny Black stamps or stamp sets and announced the following Tuesday. Good luck!

We had so much fun viewing your entries into our sketch challenge last week — stay tuned for the winner who will be announced tomorrow!   I’ll also have another project by Denise using white space tomorrow, along with Kathy’s version of Winter White.  See ya then!

    This is such a great challenge, thank you! I’m just confused with the gallery, it doesn’t show my card when searched with “winterwhite” 😦 Some instructions how to use the gallery would be great!

  23. February 14, 2011 3:21 am

    Ok – i’m silly i managed to tag my card ‘winter white’ not winterwhite – silly me put a space in the middle of the 2 words, sorry, Luv Sam x

    Kathy, What a Beautiful, beautiful card, the vellum dress is wonderful. Cinderella move over. But I was surprised when I saw it, I have been thinking about how to do a card using vellum and my idea was going to use my stamp with one of the girls and give her dress layers of vellum, but you beat me to it.
