A Little Bit Of Vintage

Over at Penny Black @ Allsorts we have been having a little bit of fun, Brenda sent us all a couple of kits out and the idea is that the whole team receive the same things and we then see how everyone has interpretated their kit. One kit is "A Little Bit Of Vintage" and the other which is to come later is "Merry Christmas"

So here is the first kit:-

Some of the papers vary but all do come from the same paper pack which is from Basic Grey. So this is what I have come up with, and as you can see we all choose our own Penny Black stamp to use.

I haven't used the clock, and I cut up the hinges to use as brackets too. The only other thing I added that wasn't in the kit was a stamped image, brads, cardstock and distress inks. I had so much fun doing this challenge.

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the rest of the teams creations using the kits. They are fantastic.

I would also like to remind you there are going to be a few changes to our challenge Penny Black @ Allsorts, We are opening up the challenge entry criteria and starting with our November challenge you will be able to use any stamp on your work, although strictly no digi images. And we are changing the day of our challenges which in future will launch on the first Sunday of the month instead of 1st of the month. There will still be lots of prizes on offer and all eligible entries will go into the draw, plus there will be an additional prize each month for entries using a Penny Black stamp or stickeroo.

And as if all that was not enough, we will be having a “Who’s in the Spotlight” feature every month. The DT will be keeping an eye open as they go on their rounds and mid month we will feature two entries which stand out to us. Those entries will be able to display our special logo.There will be a slight change to our name to take account of these changes and in future we will be know as ‘Penny Black and more at Allsorts’

1. Totally Papercrafts - challenge # 89 - Layer Upon Layer

I am so pleased you enjoyed working with the kit Tracy, I am totally amazed at the fabulous variation you all came up with.

Your image lends itself totally to the Vintage theme and the colours carry beautifully to the DP's.
