Triangle Cards

I decided to have a go at making triangle cards, I think they are fun, and look good on the mantle piece. I coloured both images from Pink Petticoat with water colour. I have tried to keep them fresh and simple, as I like this style. Unfortunatly due to todays poor lighting the colours in the picture are not as good as they are to look at in person. But never mind!!!!

My First Post

Well here I go..........................

Here is my first card, I hope you like it. I love Penny Black stamps, they are all so lovely, I was lucky to have had a small stash arrive yesterday. The large dark background is due to taking the pic late in the day, and taking it in my car! Basically, I retrieved my camera, my boyfriend who is a Royal Marine, had his medals ceremony today for his tour of duty in Afghanistan, I forgot to bring the camera home!

I have decided to be adventurous early on and enter this card into the Stamp Something blog, they to are a new blog, the theme of this weeks competition is First Somethings. As this is my first card, and first use of my lovely new stamp, I thought it rather appropraite. Its all good fun!
On this card I used:
