Born To Be Wild

I'm back today as guest designer for Penny Black Saturday challenge with a reminder for their current theme of  'anything goes with the option of inspired by a song'...... and as you may have guessed from the title of my post, the song I was inspired by was that classic by Steppenwolf  'Born to be Wild'

This fun Penny Black stamp is called 'Va Voom' and she definitely reminds me of a rebel who's just emerged from lockdown! Don't we all wish we could 'head out on the highway looking for adventure'? I know 'Hubby and I will be off for a nice drive and a short break away just as soon as it's safe to do so.... but in the meantime all I can do is dream!

I made the background using chalks for the sky, a PB stamp from the 'spread cheer' set for the hedge and a piece of torn paper for the road. The image was coloured with Promarkers before being fussy cut and then added to the background, and the sentiment is from the PB 'happy thoughts' set.



I shall enter this in the following

Fab 'n' Funky challenge 'hand coloured image

Ally's Angels challenge 'anything goes'

Southern Girls challenge 'anything goes'

and after a prompt from Bunny I'm also heading over to join in with the Cupcake Inspiration challenge where the theme is 'let's roll - things with wheels'


It would be great if you could pop over to the PBSC blog and check out the amazing inspiration from the DT... and maybe even join in with the challenge. Thanks so much for your visit today and I really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave.

Such a fun card Andrea and well done on the GDT spot, a great card to showcase.

I'm intrigued by the sentiment, I've got a PB set were you can add several words with the 'Be' and yourself is one of them, but I'm thinking this is a complete sentiment, if so which set does it come from (do you sense a 'need' coming on here?).
