Good afternoon!
I have three different versions of a one layer Penny Black card today :

Number 1:

Number 2:

Number 3:

I couldn't decide which one was best so I thought that I would share all 3!

First I stamped my Penny Black image 'Piggy Love' 2549K and made a mask from a Post It note.
Then I made a cloud mask out of Acetate and chalked the clouds.
Next I stamped my sentiment from a retired Stampin' Up! set and then coloured my image with Promarkers.
Finally I added Glossy Accents to the balloons.


I would love to know which is your favourite?
Thanks for visiting today!



  1. So cute ! This little piggy is adorable, I love his smiling face ! The three of them are brillant but my fave one is the one with the red balloons ! Love the glossy touch on the balloons and your beautiful cloudy sky ! A lovely take on our challenge. Thanks for sharing and for playing along at Less is More !

  2. Hi Eve. What a tough choice!!! Your cards are gorgeous! Your cloud effect is simply fantastic! I had to flick between your cards over and over, to fully appreciate them. Your balloons look so great with the Glossy Accents on them - it gave such a great 3D effect to a one-layer card. Mmmmm, if I absolutely HAD TO choose between them, I'd probably pick card Number 3, based on the placement of the sentiment, off in the corner. I feel the placement in the corner 'anchored' the card, giving a firm idea of the size and shape of the card, and also a feeling that the creative design was all around little Porky and the scene created, but that the sentiment belongs to the base card - anchored, not floating around with your character. Thanks so much for sharing your cute little creations with us at Passion for Promarkers this week! Linda

  3. Adorable cards Eve, such a cute image and I love the glossy balloons - a great idea for the LIM challenge.

  11. I love this collection of cards, they're a great idea for batch making! The little piggy is so cute and your cloud background is awesome. The glossy accent on the balloons is brilliant and my favourite is number 3 I think, although I love them all.
