As you may know, we post a card challenge every Monday. This week we’re challenging you to create a *new* Penny Black stamped card using the colors you see in Jill’s card; purple, green, and cream. Upload your entry by Midnight Sunday night, PST and be sure to use the tag, ‘pennyblackcolortrio’.

    This is great. I have some fuchsia stamps and was never happy with my coloring. Yours were so pretty. Thanks for the tutorial.
