My new stamps

Hello lovely bloggers,

Here is my card to show you today stamped with my new Penny Black clear stamps and coloured with Faber Castell water colour pencils. I had this doily sitting around doing nothing on my table for months now so I thought I should use it before it wears out. And this gingham paper seemed to match perfectly as did the buttons (I just find buttons hard to resist specially when they match perfectly) and the embroidery yarn. I do think my colouring is improving... lol.


I will enter this card in the following challenges:

http://lovetoscrapchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/ - anything goes

Love,

Monica
