The Penny Black challenge this week is a sketch, which I have posted below. I rotated it to better fit the image, but otherwise, I followed it pretty closely.
After I got my image all colored, I realized that it was too big for my largest oval Nestie. I really didn't want to cut into the image, so I cut it out and then popped it with foam squares on top of the oval piece. I ran the white oval through my Big Kick with my D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder for a little more interest.
The ribbon for the 2RB challenge comes in with the narrow strip on the sketch. For this piece I used some yellow "lattice" ribbon that I've had for a long, long time. I think it's really pretty, but it just never worked with anything. I think it turned out great with this sketch. I also used a sheer black/white polka dot ribbon down the center.
