The title is the theme of Sir Stampalot's February Challenge, and luckily for me this Penny Black image has a great big bear on it and a little bird, so that was perfect. I have coloured him in using Promarkers and have followed a sketch (See Below).
Before punching out the flowers I embossed using a TimHoltz folder and attached using brads and 3d squares, adding chalk to the edges before popping on the card.
Three papermania green gems were added to the top lhs and two buttons and a wee LOTV sentiment circle was popped on the bottom lhs (as per sketch).
The gorgeous red ribbon is from around a christmas pressy.
Now for the part that I enjoyed the most. This would be adding the swirly scrollwork, I used my versamark pad (long forgotten in a drawer) on another penny black stamp and stamped onto the base card, then using my lovely tray of chalks(also long forgotten in a drawer), I added a mixture of reds/grns/pinks and generally had lots of fun with it. I am sooo going to be using this effect much much more in the near future.
I am entering this card into 6 challenges as follows:-
