I've just found a lovely new challenge blog that I'm hoping to play along with often. It's called The Library Challenge and they choose book titles for their challenge!  How inspiring!   Their Challenge this week is :

I have a confession to make - I have never read this book!  I was a voracious reader as a child and still am - I prefer paper to digital and like to feel the books I read and I can't believe I never read this - I wonder if it's too late?  I was inspired by the gorgeous image to try my hand and some chalk colouring - I'm not sure if that's the technical term but it's what I'm calling.

I have these lovely Folk Art type stamps I don't know where I got them from but they have these lovely images of the hare and the flowers.  The little fox and hare came from another winter scene set I have.  I used some Archival Brilliance ink in Moonlight White to stamp my images.  I then used Derwent Metallic pencils for the colouring in.  I layered it onto a piece of Kaisercraft paper from their Enchanted paper pad.  The sentiment which I thought goes really well is from SU Animal Outing.

How lovely - mine was chosen as a winner.
