Penny Black - Your favourite


This week at Penny Black at Allsorts the challenge theme is "you're my favourite".  At the moment the PB image I have used on my card is one of my favourites. I love the simplicity of the stamp and it can be used for many different occasions. I decided to keep the simplicity by using only a few colours throughout.  I used Aqumarkers to colour my image which worked well with the papers and card I used.
The Penny Black challenge runs for the whole month of June and there are some gorgous Penny Black stamps to be won along with other lovely goodies from Letraset and PB stamps throughout the month. Pop over to http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.com/ to check out the DT's work for inspiration.
 Great news too. The lovely Clare has joined the PB designer team and Brenda and all the team welcome her aboard. Make sure you visit when her first creation goes live on the PB @ Allsorts blog.
As usual there were so many challenges I wanted to enter and these are all listed below. Why not pop over to these blogs and check out the lovely work by the designer teams.They all work really hard to make sure you get lots of inspiration and if you left them a short comment I'm sure they would appreciate it.

Good Monring Shirley

An adorable card adn the tone on tone with just the touch of aqua works perfectly.

Pleased to see you are enjoying using your Aquamarkers, they take a bit of getting used to as with all new things, but I find I now reach for them as a first colouring option.

Hope all is well with you.
