Something Hand Colored for Allsorts Challenge

Good morning and happy weekend! It's my turn to host this week's Allsorts challenge and I picked the theme of "Use a Hand Colored Image". We have a pretty stamp from Chocolate Baroque this week that will go to one lucky, randomly selected winner! It could be YOU so hope you'll decide to join us!

By the way, on Sept. 9th, Chocolate Baroque will launch a new stamp release on Hochanda TV at 5pm (UK time).


Now onto my card, I used a new stamp set from Penny Black today. I've purchased it a few months ago but didn't get a chance yet to ink it up.

Unfortunately this isn't my best coloring. I ran out of my prefered copic coloring paper xpress it blending card and I used this brand from Walmart instead. It works well with colored pencils but not so much with copics :-( . It really is time for me to re-order some cardmaking essentials!! It's funny how I always thought I'd never run out of cardmaking supplies! Well here we are!!  

This stamp set is called Fun Felines and is from a more recent release earlier this year. Stamped with Memento Tuxedo ink and as mentioned I colored with Copic markers.

I used some of my pattern paper scraps for the card design and the sentiment is from the same cute set. Before adhering to the card base, I used Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches die set to cut out the card front. 

Thanks so much for visiting!

Also, next week at Allsorts challenge we're having our belated Birthday Celebrations with lots of prizes. All info is in the logo below. Hope you'll join us then, and feel free to post this logo on your side bars as a reminder and maybe some of your blogging friends will join us too :)
