Simon Says: Back to School with Penny Black

Happy Wednesday crafty friends that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!


This week Simon Says: Back to School! The design team is featuring Penny Black products, you don't have to use them but if you have them we would love to see them! 



Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!


So, I struggled with this theme and the whole part of a challenge is to get out of your comfort zone! Luckily I have plenty of Penny Black products but very few back to school items. So, I though why not make one for my niece in high school! 


I chose the Hello Gorgeous set by Penny Black and decided to add the Mama Elephant Bookworm set with the pile of books and apple. Once I decided on my images I used my Copics to color them in and used the accompanying dies with the exception of the girl. There are no dies for this PB set so I fussy cut the image.  I chose the Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop in white to layer on top of a Kraft card base. I liked the way that looked so I opted for a Kraft top panel die cut from another Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop rectangle cut on the top and one of the sides to fit in the upper left hand corner. 

I place all of my images on top and then stamped the sentiments all from Penny Black sets.


I added some gel detail and various gems to finish off my project!
