Penny Black & More - October Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying fall so far! We had so some nice weather over here, warm days, chilly nights...perfect!

It's time for a new challenge at Penny Black and More! This month we are going to make it very easy for everyone, as our theme is simply

Anything goes!

As always feel free to use any brand of rubber or clear stamps, or Penny Black stickeroos, just no digistamps please.

Here is what I create for this month, using Penny Black's clear stamp set "Micey Day".

The image has been colored using copic markers. Sentiment is part of the cute set.
I used one of my "fall-to" sketches. The gray printed paper behind the image was made by using the large background stamp "life defined" from Whimsy Stamps.

Here is a complete list of products used:
Stamps: Micey Day (Penny Black), Life Defined (whimsy stamps)
Papers: from stash
Tools: large leafy flourish die (whimsy stamps)
Embellishments: ribbon, twine, prima flower, brad, glitter

Copic markers used:
Mice: C0, C2, C5, R11
cherries: R22, R27, R29, R39, YG91, YG67, E31 (stems)
Cup: B0000, B41, C0
Spoon: B31, E33

 We have several fabulous sponsors again this month, Penny Black, Crimson Cloud and Crafty Ribbons, hope you'll join if for a chance to win!
