Penny Black Saturday Challenge


This is my card for the PBSC.
I sponged the background with inks from Kaleidacolor. I embossed the image with black. If you can believe it...no stickles!!
I had seen some fab cards lately with sponged backgrounds. I mentioned it to my friend Cathy, and she said "I can show you how to do that". WELL... If you ever want to know how to do something when it comes to stamping and card making...she's the one to ask. I like to refer to her as " Cathy, my book of knowledge!!
She hasn't seen my finished card yet,so I hope she likes it.
Have a great day everyone.
Karen
