This is my entry to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week which is 5 Circles. The inspiration for this project came from Erika at Snappycrafts who has been making and posting pictures of telescopic cards and this gave me the idea for a wall hanging for the 5 Circles challenge. I mean to have a go at a telescopic card yet though.
The Penny Black image used in this project is Pansy Rabbit and it's coloured using Promarkers. The image and the other four panels are framed and layered using Nestabilities and Grand Nestabilities plain and scalloped circles. The purple pearlescent card used is from the Papeterie and the patterned papers and pansy elements are from the Nitwit download Time for Tea which were manipulated in the My Craft Studio Professional programme. The scallops on the base layers were pricked and then stitching and beads were added.
The pansy flower name meaning and the verse were both sourced from the internet. I had to seek help from OH on how to type French accents.
The two small panels have beaded pansies in them. I'd recently been looking through ideas books which I'd bought for inspiration and found Embroidery Creations with Beads by Jantina Lanting and this is where the pattern for the beaded pansy topper came from.
I don't have a recipient in mind for this project as it was just a piece of fun for me to make and meet the challenge. Had my Mum-in-law still been around then this would have been one for her as it's in her favourite colours and she loved flowers. I regret that I never found out what her favourite flower was.
I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges
