MilkCoffee Showcase – Vehicles

Hello, here I am again (good grief!) and this time with my DT post for the MilkCoffee Showcase and the showcase theme today is Vehicles.

The image I used is called Antique Bicycle With Flower Basket available here and I wanted to keep it all a bit simpler than my usual offering.

I printed the image onto the brand new Neenah cardstock from Crafters Companion called Desert Storm
which is a Kraft card especially created for colouring. Oooh ‘tis fab!  Great for using with your markers but this time I used my Spectrum Noir Pencils as I love them so much!

Stamps: MilkCoffee ‘Antique Bicycle – Justrite sentiment
Dies/Punches:  Very old X-Cut flower punch when they were boot shaped and blue!
Paper/Card: Neenah Desert Storm Kraft card - American Crafts
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Pencils
Others: Small wooden butterflies from my stash – 'Shabby Pink' Frantage - Stickles

 Check out all the amazing designs by my teamies here and visit the MilkCoffee shop to see all the gorgeous images that live there.  And don’t forget to join in the current challenge on the challenge blog which is Welcome Spring.

 Thanks so much for looking!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
