Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Challenge 3 "Colour"

This weeks challenge over on Penny Black Challenge Blog was "Colour". We had to use just three colours, brown, pink & green. I don't own a huge amount of PB stamp....I have 2 cats, 1 dog and about 4 girl ones...plus a couple of Xmas ones. I keep looking at the animal ones, but it is just too difficult to decide...and they aren't cheap.

Anyway for the card I used a stamp from 1999, "Clothesline Cat" , the paper are Basic Grey "Sultry". For the sentiment I use my ATB Tape Writer. For those who have asked, ATB = Around the Block. The Tape Writer is just like a Dymo, but with the added benefit that ATB have made the font wheels interchangeable. My favourite and most used font is "Ransom", but they also have a cursive font too. If you put Around the Block Tape Writer into Google...or your preferred search engine, you will find some UK stockists. Mine was from Oyster Crafts.

Any, thanks to the DT over on the Penny Black Challenge Blog...thanks for getting me using my PB stamps...as always your work was awesome.
