Morning Everyone,

It's time for another challenge at As You Like It and this fortnight the theme is to showcase a project using your favourite of either people or animals (and don't forget to tell us why they are your favourite please).

I have chosen animals as I think they are much more versatile on cards than people and easier to colour.  I always struggle if an image has a lot of hair and I find fur easier.

My image is a Penny Black stamp bought on Ebay recently.  It's bigger than I thought so I've cut the flower outside of the oval Sizzix die.  It's not the first time I've bought a stamp and didn't realise how big it was!  I've coloured the image with copics and used some lovely Maja design paper, distressed the edges and used my sewing machine too. Gorgeous lace, flowers, pearls and a kaisercraft sentiment finish it off.

The sponsor for the challenge is

with a prize of 3 digi images for the winner

If you'd like to pop over to the challenge here you'll be able to see the lovely inspiration from the rest of the DT.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Penny Black at Allsorts - Close to nature
Addicted to Stamps - Anything goes with flowers
The Ribbon Girl - Any image

I hope you have a good weekend with lots of happy crafting. Thank you for visiting, I really appreciate and love to read any comments you leave.
