Good Neighbours

I love this sweet flower garden image from Penny Black.  I had to buy it after seeing it coloured to perfection by Hannelie (click here to see her card).

I stamped in Archival Black ink and then watercoloured with my zigs.  I really enjoy this type of watercolouring. :)

I added a sentiment banner at the bottom, stamped in green to match the leaves on the image.

Here's a close-up ...
I made this card to play along with Penny Black Saturday Challenge where Anything Goes.

Oh Loll...had to laugh when I saw your comment about having to have this stamp set after seeing Hannelie's card, as it has been sitting in my cart for a few weeks now while I make up my mind about whether I NEED it or not after seeing Hannelie's beautiful card! Yours turned out just as lovely using the Zigs...so bright and colorful and just delightful! Love it!! :0)

The first thing that struck me when I saw this card is the absolutely gorgeous shading on it. That stamp is just so fun and whimsical! After seeing yours, it's now on my wish list! You really have mastered those Zigs.

Love this stamp with the sweet birds and birdhouses! And those flowers are beautiful! It is fun to color with the Zigs! It's makes a beautiful card too!

Just can't beat a combination of a lovely PB image and your wonderful watercoloring skills. This pretty looks very spring like and has such an 'airy' feel with the bright colors and all the white space. TFS

Your zig watercolouring is so beautiful, Loll! Your garden looks cheerful, bright, airy and springy! I love the bottom sentiment banner too. The edge-to-edge banner is a fresh idea and the matching green sentiment color is nice! Hideko xx

I was just looking at this stamp this morning, Loll, and trying to decide whether to get it or not. It isn't on Amazon Prime so I let it go. You've made it look so cute with your Zigs.
