New theme at Penny Black and More Challenge "Things with wings".....

Good morning!

Well, can you believe we are into July? So it's a new theme over at Penny Black and More Challenges and this months new challenge is "Things with wings".

I have chosen my things with wings to be my butterflies, dragonflies and bee.

I have used the new Spectrum Noir aqua tint pens on this creation, stamping with the pens direct to stamp technique and pulled the colour in with a damp brush.  I have used distress oxides for the background.

30-416 Happy Thoughts set is where my sentiment has come from and the 30-095 Flower Festival for my flowers, butterflies and dragonflies.  My lovely little (or not so little!) bee is from 30-352 Animal Wisdom.

Do remember when entering our challenges that the main focal image of your creation must be a hand stamped image - no digital images allowed please.

Hope you like this one and good luck for the challenge this month!

  1. The year does seem to be marching away with us doesn't it Leanne.

    You have captured the essence of a warm summery day with the pretty flowers and butterflies and other little winged things.

    Have a lovely Sunday, another warm one.

  2. This is such a pretty card Leanne and the flowers look so beautiful. You’ve shaded them perfectly and they remind me of the old Victorian water colours, fabulous colour palette too. Wishing you a happy and colourful week. Crafty hugs, Sandra x x
