I’m going to TRY to blog more often this year…famous last words, I hear you say??? We’ll see …

So, there are a few ‘New’ or ‘Something New’ Challenges around at the moment and I thought I’d concentrate on that in this post.

I recently bought a few new Penny Black Stamps – I do love their flowers – so I’ve been playing with them the last few days.

The first is this beautiful blossom stamp..stamped with Tombow Markers and watercoloured afterwards. Some of the inks were smudged by my clumsy painting, but I don’t mind the small smudges.


Here’s another using the same stamp … Not too happy with the way that ‘Many Thanks’ stamps – it’s unusual for PB stamps, which are usually amazing quality.


Here’s another one, where I was just messing around, really.  Not sure I’ll keep this one… I stamped over an inked background, so it’s very subtle and the black is a little overpowering.


This is one I’ve had since December, but hadn’t really used until now.


Here’s my latest…I LOVE this stamp! I love magnolias but this is so pretty.


This is another magnolia stamp I’ve had for a long time but hardly used – seen next to the above, it looks very insignificant!


And here’s a little Bible Journalling.



I’ll enter one of the above cards into the following challenges:-

Allsorts – Something New

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge – Something New

Penny Black and more – Something New

Everybody Art Challenge – Latest Purchase

See you soon!

Thanks for looking.
