Penny Black Saturday Challenge week 162

Welcome to my little blog.
This week the challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is

and if you are wondering what on earth I am on about....let me explain.
we would like you to use your Penny Black stamps to create a background...
so time to get your thinking caps on and get creative....
Well I don't have many PB stamps that I thought would fit the bill so I had to put my thinking cap on.

I decided to spritz a sheet of card with Tattered Angels crushed seashell mist, and stamp the first part of the
"Another 365 days trip around the sun" stamp as a watermark type effect.  It didn't go quite as well as I hoped, but it looked passable.  I think I would use a different shade of ink if I tried it again.

Stamp used is Two's company.  My current favourite :)
Paper is Basic Grey hopscotch
Sentiments are by Whimsy stamps
Ribbon is Oloroso from "The Ribbon Girl"

Hope you like it :)
