Punch

Hello friends,

Happy New Year to all – wishing you love, health and happiness in 2020. It is also Double D Challenges 4th anniversary and to celebrate we have a beautiful mood DD_Punchboard to inspire you. The theme is “Punch”. We want to see some poor neglected punches used on your creations. Please visit the Double D Challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from Double “D”s talented designers and join in the fun!

For my card I used an adorable Penny Black stamp and an old border and flower punch. I was also inspired by the lovely yellow colour in the inspiration picture. I stamped the image on white card-stock and did the colouring with watercolour pencils. I punched the trellis border at the bottom of the image and then lifted the panel from the base card with mirror tape. I made the flowers with two punched layers in white and yellow and then distressed the leaves with yellow ink. I finished off with a die cut sentiment, banner and glitter stones.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
