Image result for visible image stay strong stamp

My card uses the Penny Black stamp 236J - Pink Toes.

I have paper pieced the dress and shoes.
Coloured the image with Promarkers.
All the papers are from very old stash and unfortunately no idea of the makers but I thought that with the pink, black and grey dots they fitted the image perfectly.
I have had this stamp for a long time and to be honest I have no idea why I bought it because neither of my Daughters or my Niece had ballet lessons.

Had a lovely day at the Dome, met with the lovely Ladies from Stamping Sensations,
Sandra, Sally and Lynne, Sally brought us all a delicious piece of home made Lemon Drizzle cake.

For the first time, for a very long time, there was actually a stand that had some Penny Black stamps, didn't buy any as a lot of them were the sort that you have to colour the stamp before stamping
and I can not get that right for love or money.
Pleased to say that I didn't spend too much!


Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave are very much appreciated.

That's a cutie! I think we've all bought stamps for no other reason than that we liked them.

Happy Friday.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Your card is so pretty Kath, that little stamp is so sweet, you probably just couldn't resist it when you saw it! I've loads of stamps bought just because they appealed to me, some of them still unused I'm ashamed to say!. Love the design of your card too and the spotted paper is perfect.
Glad you had a good time at the show, how lovely to meet up with the ladies-very impressed that you didn't spend too much-such self control!
