I decided to take the challenge at Penny Black this week rather literally. The theme is called Indian Summer and so I decided to stamp my fabulous Penny black 'Golden Leaves' stamp directly onto some Basic Grey DP from the Indian Summer stack. This was a gift from Sherry, a fellow crafter in the states and I love it.
I decided to make the leaves look like their title and stamped the image with Versamark and then embossed with Stamp 'n Bond and finally added gilding flakes. I love the effect this gives.
I then used my Stampin' Up French Script background stamp to add the gold writing. The beautiful punching along the bottom is from my Fiskars Upper Crest border punch.
It was difficult to find a sentiment stamp which was in a suitable font to match the background, but I think that this one from Create and Craft fits perfectly.
A little bow made with my bow maker and the job was done. I hope you like it.
