The challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts for the month of February is " Welcome Spring" and this is the card that I made for the challenge. I thought the cute cat image with the basket of flowers was very apt for the theme and it is one of my favourite stamps. I used acetate for the front of my card but it is only visible in this photo along the top of the picture. A few flowers, ribbon and one of my favourite embellishments, Sparkly gems, finished it off nicely.
I photographed it several times but this is the best I could do. I did very little colouring on my image and using Aquamarkers made it so easy to do. I am really impressed with them and favour them slightly more that Promarkers just because of their versatillity. I like the fact that you can dilute the colours down to get lots of different shades. For this image I used 6 colours. Straw yellow, Rose carmine, Celery, Mauve, Storm Blue and Sepia.
The challenge runs for the whole month of March so you have plenty of time to make your card for the challenge if you have not already done so. Here are the gorgeous stamps that are up for grabs this month:-
