Oldie But A Goodie #25 - The Great Outdoors

Hi everyone and welcome to another Oldie But a Goodie Challenge. Thanks so much to everyone who entered last time - some fab interpretations of Francesca's sketch! Don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you have won the prize from the last challenge.

This time it is Lisa Jane's turn to choose the challenge theme, ad she has chosen

The Great Outdoors

.. and Lisa has also donated this fab prize by Flippin' Stamps ...

Don't forget that in order to be eligible for the prize you should submit a new piece of work which features a stamped image (no digis please) that is at least six months old.

I decided to interpret the great outdoors as encompassing nature and the garden ... and here's what I did ...

I really adore this Penny Black bunny and hadn't used him in a while, so I thought I would create a kind of country garden look with floral paper, and a punched garden trellis with butterflies and foliage.

Main image: Penny Black "Bunny Bath" coloured with Promarkers and Copics;
Sentiment: Debbi Moore;
Papers: Prima;
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; ribbon recycled from some packaging (can't quite remember what now lol!)
Tools: large oval and large scalloped oval nestabilities; Martha Stewart "garden trellis" edge punch and small monarch butterfly punch; Marianne D Creatables foliage die.

I ♥ ProMarkers #77 - Things With Wings
Spoon Full of Sugar #162 - Happy Birthday
Pollycraft #105 - Recycle

Hope you can join us this fortnight.
