Penny Black birthday!

Love, love this new set from Penny Black!! I had seen it on line when it came out.........couldn't resist, LOL!
I have been trying some different things to improve the quality of the pictures, I do have a photo tent but I think I need more lighting around it, the cards really look nicer IRL!
This image is coloured with Prismacolour pencils and Gamsol, I have hardly any of my favourite watercolour paper left and I can't get it here so my beloved Tombo's have a little break.
The pencils with Gamsol work like a charm too, so easy and the soft look is nice.
The sentiment is from Clear Dollar stamps, paper from DCWV, ribbon from stash, EK heart punch, Nestabilities and some stickles.
Hopefully the sun will come out and dry our wheat fields, so that we can get the wheat off.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by, Anja

That is SO cute! I love your colouring - the softness adds to the look of the image.
I've learned so much from your cards, and today I saw something else - you used 2 Nestabilities together that aren't the same - I get so fixated on needing to use the same shape, but I see that it doesn't really matter!
P.S. I still have almost a whole sheet of your watercolour paper - do you want it back? I just needed a small piece to practice on...

Very cute. I'll need to borrow it sometime ;)
