Little Ladybugs

As one challenge ends, another one begins. This fortnight on Challenges 4 Everybody we've had the privilege of having some Oak Pond Creations digistamps to play with. They have some fantastic images, and what the rest of the DT have done with them is fab. I chose an absolutely gorgeous image of some little ladybirds hiding behind a flower.
This week I went a little bit mad and spoilt myself with a new set of pens. I've been wanting to try Spectrum Noirs for some time and there was a fab offer on in the local garden centre which was just too good to miss. This is the first time I've used them and I'm quite happy with how it turned out. They are very different to use to Promarkers and I've found the colours to be much richer.
