A few weeks ago, I got this adorable Penny Black image in the mail from my blogging buddy, Jen. She was challenging me, and some other stampers, to create a card with the image for some fun! What a great idea, right!?! Well, I broke out some of my Doodlebug paper from last year, and started to play!

I used the colors from the paper to color the image with my Copics, then I cut it out, allowing the tail to hang down. (There's a name for this technique, but it escapes me! Sorry, I'm bad with techniques! Out of the Box, maybe???) For the purple layer, I used a polka dot background that I received at StampFest (can't remember the vendor - I'll have to ask Sherry! LOL ETA: Got it - it's Stamp Camp!) for the lower part of the piece. Then I stamped the bats from MFT's Fright Night on top with my Glue Pad, and added some black Martha Stewart glitter. It's really spaw-kly IRL!

The sentiment is also from Fright Night, and the stitching is from a Technique Tuesday set I've had for a while. I moved the words around in the sentiment for it to fit in the punch. It's usually all on one line. Then I added the doodling, and viola! It's done!

Hope you like it, Jen! That image was so much fun to play with!

I hope to be back with more soon, so stay tuned!
