Two of a kind

I was going to say Good Morning but looking at the clock I can see it's well into the afternoon lol.

Lady and Diva Lim have given us a sketch to work with this week and as I had this Penny Black stamp sitting on my desk ready to use I thought it was ideal to cut up to follow the sketch.

The topper really doesn't look straight in the photo but I went back and measured just to check it was irl - and it is! Penguins are coloured with promarkers and a gel pen and highlighted with a gelly roll pen. Backing paper is from a DCWV adhesive stack, matted on gold textured mirri card. Card is finished with a ribbon saved from a cracker and a peel off sentiment.

  11. The backgrounds of these cards seem to detract a little from the fabulous images, I think that maybe they would look good on something a little less hectic... maybe just an embossed white strip to give a little interest but not be a distraction!
    What do you think Carol? It's just a suggestion!
    Thanks for being such a dedicated LIMette!
