Penny Black @ Allsorts April challenge part 1

The challenge this month at Allsorts is Black and White Plus One.  I've managed to make two cards for the challenge and this is the first one -

This stamp is one of my fave Penny Black's - now I don't care much for anything that buzzes but I think this image is so so cute LOL!!  I have watercoloured the image with Derwent pencils and lightly glittered the wings with Stardust stickles.  The flowers are punched with an EK Success daisy punch and the leaves are a MS punch.  The sentiment is Personal Impressions and the oval punches are Stampin' Up.  The patterned paper is from a Papermania 6x6 pad.

A close up of the image -

I will share the other card in my next blog post!!
