Penny Black Saturday #162!

Good evening! I hope you've all had a lovely sunshiney Monday! Sorry this post is so late but two of my closest friends got married on Saturday, Jamie was Best Man and I was doing the hair so we kind of got a bit caught up in everything and I forgot all about my little blog!
Anyway, this post is for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge! This week is Penny Black-ground! We'd like to see you use your PBs to make a background for your card! Tricky huh?! This weeks prize should spur you on though...a Guest Designer spot for the whole of September!!
I thought it would be a good excuse to use the little extra stamps that come on the clear sets, these flowers and little butterfly are from the Mimi in Paris set and I've stamped them in rows using different colour Distress Inks, they went a bit blobby so I'm not really happy with it but Kath's given me a good tip to try, inking them first with Versamark a few times, I'll let you know how it goes! Thanks Kath!
