Blogtober 2015 Day 1 - Penny Black 'Engineer'

Well it is day one of Blogtober, if you would like to join in, then just leave a link to your blog in this post.

I will kick off with some cards made with a favourite Penny Black cling stamp 'Engineer'.  Being married to a rail worker and having lots of railway buffs for family and friends, this stamp has definitely earned its keep in my collection.

Mr P's brother was 50 last month so this was the card that I made for him, the papers are from Wild Rose Studio and the sentiment is by Penny Black.  I used Thickers for the age.

I coloured in several images at the same time so made some other birthday cards using them.  I used Stampin' Up framelits to cut my image and then traced round the outside of the frame and handcut to make a mat.  The papers for the card below are by K&Co and the sentiment is Penny Black.

These cards used a rectangle stitched die from Memory Box, the papers are Basic Grey (?? Boxer, they are out of my scraps box) and the sentiment is by Hero Arts.

I used Promarkers to colour the stamp and added dots to the neckerchief with a white gel pen.
