August challenge - I Spy

Good morning and welcome to our August challenge ansd this month our theme is..............

****I spy with my little eye something beginning with 'B'****

Lots of possibilities here and you can include as many or few 'B's' as you want, but please do tell us what your 'B's are. As always you can use any make of stamp and enter up to three times, but we must see hand stamping as the focal element of your artwork, this means:

Stamping must be the central point of attention and interest

The one exception is Penny Black Stickeroos, but strictly no digi images. 

As always some lovely prizes to be won and first up Penny Black
