Shape Up and DT call

Good morning and welcome to our May challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts. This month our theme is "Shape Up - Anything but square or rectangle" and of course to use a Penny Black stamp or Stickeroo as main image. We also have a DT call this month as the lovely Jules has stepped down from the team.

I used Spellbinders scalloped circle dies to make an easel card and stamps from the Clearly in Love and the Illumination sets.
The Fuchsia is coloured with Aqua Markers and the water spritz technique (you can spritz water quite generously, try on a scratch paper at first) and embossed with fine powder. For the backgrounds I used Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls. The small size of the card is perfect for scraps.
We have fantastic prizes as usually; Penny Black stamps from our new sponsor, Sir Stampalot, a set of Aqua Markers from Letraset and a lifetime 15% discount at PB stamps.
