Cute spring card


The Penny Black and More http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.com/ theme for March is " Spring " and I must say my DT card was a joy to make. I love the bright colours and my lovely Penny Black image is one of my top favourites. I only used 5 Aquamarkers for minimal colouring on my image and they co-ordinated beautifully with my chosen paper and card. If you have not used Aquamarkers before, give them a try. I like the fact that they can be watered down giving several different shades from one marker. I did use them neat on my image though as I wanted the bright colours. I hope my card brings to mind a lovely spring day for you and we all have those to look forward too soon.
I have entered it into several challenges which are listed below.
