Garden Treats

Hello. My local craft shop is selling off all their wood mounted stamps half price. They have quite a few Penny Blacks so some of them came home with me, including this one! I do love the original PB's  - cats, hedgies, bears and the rest. Probably because they lend themselves best to watercolouring - my very favourite way of colouring.

I think I have made a card using a layout similar to this one before - I am loving white space at the mo'.

I am entering the 'anything goes' challenge over at Cute Card Thursday.

Gorgeous as ever! You always colour beautifully whatever medium you use. I love my watercolour pencils too and don't know why I've neglected them for so long.

Such a sweet card Liz. I have some of these PB stamps, and I think it would be a great idea to try colouring them with my new Aquamarkers. Your card also fits the themes of the new challenges at Penny Black and More and Penny Black Saturday challenge.

I think (sadly) so many people are turning away from the wood mount (because of cost and space/storage issues) that they may soon become a thing of the past. I still love rubber on wood myself! The PB hedgies have always been a favorite of mine.
