   Back to stamping and colouring for this card and this one brings back memories of blackberry picking when I was a child. The stamp used was Jayne Netley Mayhew's wren and I coloured it using Spectrum Noir pencils adding glossy accents to the berries. The sentiment was from the same set of stamps. The strip of design paper was printed using Joanna Sheen's House Mouse CD ROM and was matted onto core'dinations cardstock.
