Something Beginning with "B"

It's Saturday and that means it's the start of a new theme at Allsorts challenge. Brenda is hosting this week and picked the theme of "I Spy Something Beginning with B".  I always enjoy this theme, it's fun to see what everyone is coming up with and I love searching through my stamps to see what I can find!

Can you spy all the B's on my card?

There is the obvious bicycle, but then I noticed the black berrets and the basket on the bike, then used a brick stamp and some blossoms, and even inked the edges with blue ink 😎. 

All stamps are by Penny Black, the girl on bike is called Fluffy Passenger. Stamped on Xpress It Blending card (I purchased mine from Amazon, but can't seem to find a link to it now) with Memento Tuxedo ink and colored with Copic markers. The flowers on two of the corners are Penny Black's stamp At Grace, inked with distress markers and stamped with the help of my stamp platform (options). 

I wanted to add the impression of a brick wall so I used Penny Black's brick wall stamp on the background. Finally stencilled a design to mimic a road using Penny Black's Oscillations stencil. The sentiment is also by Penny Black from the set Happy Wishes. And I finished off by adding a sticky sentiment to the top left from Tim Holtz's Quotations Metallic Sticker Sheet
