Well here it is my first ever Penny Black Challenge, (my first
challenge ever). This stamp PB (Sight of Stars quote by Van Gogh)
I have had for a couple of years and I love it!!!! Sorry about photo!
If you click onto piccies you do get a bit of a better close-up???
With this Christmas Card I have stamped it onto vellum with
Black StazOn, matted and layered with turqoise blue and then
brown card stock. I had some sheer fabric with little pieces of
sparkle in my stash so cut it to size and layered it on top and
attached with white brad. Down the side I have attached a
beautiful large wire star. I then punched some small stars from
silver glitter card and stuck these on along with some from
a Peel off, also Merry Christmas Peel off along side. I hope they
