Crafting Morning

On Monday morning a crafty friend of mine Sandra and I decided to get together and have a go at one of the challenges in blogland and see what we could come up with.
We chose Penny black Saturday challenge to play with and here is the card I made.

The main backing paper I made using my whisper brush markers scribbled onto a piece of acetate. Another peice of acetate was placed on top and then rubbed together to mix the inks. paper was then placed between the sheets of acetate and rubbed down to transfer the ink. The brown spotty paper is dovecraft masculine. The image is from Penny blacks 'Bubbly' range. I coloured this with my whisper pens and koi brush. Due to the card stock i used the colours started to bleed which was annoying at first but then I decided i really liked the effect it gave.
Check out Sandra's blog to see how her challenge card came out, once she has uploaded it lol.
