I LOVE Penny Black critter stamps and was lucky to have won some earlier this year from Kathy. I saw this weeks challenge over at Penny Black blog was Penny Critters I thought of one of the sets I won called "Paint The Town". It has some adorable critters. So here's what I came up with.....
I stamped onto white card and coloured in the hedgie and bee with Copic pens. I then used a Nellie Snellen die to cut it out and then sponged the grass and sky while the image was still in the die. Found some pretty paper from A Pink Petticoat pack that was a freebie with Quick Cards magazine and a lovely pearlised card from Rosie's Studio. Added the green ribbon and bow. Popped the panel and all done. I was really happy with the result.
Also entering this into the following challenges

Today has been very spring like ~ super warm and sunny. I managed a nice walk along the beach this morning and sat out in the sun for lunch. Tonight there is an important rugby match on here in Auckland ~ The All Blacks (NZ) versus Les Bleus ( France) - our arch nemesis!!!! My hubby is off to watch it live with his 2 brothers and his BIL. Wishing our team all the best ~ GO THE ALL BLACKS~ I'll be watching it on the TV in about 2 hours time!
Thanks for visiting.
