Pieces of Quiet for Penny Black Challenge

On the Penny Black challenge this week, they asked for LOTS OF DOTS, so with the help of some WeR Memory Keepers Whiteout Frenzy papers, here's mine.
The adorable little boy is a Slapstick stamp by Penny Black, called Pieces of Quiet, coloured with Copics and Promarkers.

A bit of stitching always helps in my opinion.................
Isn't that the sweetest sentiment?

I stamped him twice, once onto the orange paper, then onto white, which I coloured then cut around the boy, and popped him onto the base image with foam pads.

Thanks to those of you who suggested vinegar for my insect bites, it really works, mind you, I smell like a fish and chip shop...........
See you tomorrow


  1. I love how you popped the little guy up. And I am so glad your insect bites are better. hugs

  10. Vinager....really? Well if you don't want to smell like a chip shop when you go out, I use 'Gold Bond' medicated anti-itch cream.
    (Although it isn't a particularly lovely scent) but it works, and you won't smell like you've been toiling over the fish n chips all day! lol
    I love this little boy stamp. Since I have mostly boys to make for I'm drawn to the little boy things. TFS

  11. Love this bright card with the gorgeous little cutie on, those colours would really make it special card for a child.
