New challenges at Creative Craft Cottage and CCC Digi Creations

Both of our Creative Craft Cottage challenges are up today.
Over at CCC Digi Creations the theme this fortnight is Digi/Things with Wings

This fortnight's sponsor is


Kathryne is offering one lucky winner, their choice
of 5 digi stamps from her store.


I used this  butterfly and the sentiment is from this set. 

Printed the butterfly and the sentiment onto watercolour paper and then used paints to colour.  Added a line of washi tape along the bottom. 

And over at Creative Craft Cottage we have a sketch/colour board.  




For this one I used different Patterned Papers for my layers.  The focal point is cut from some watercolour paper.  I masked the edges and stamped a WPlus9 rose and coloured with Copics.  I then used some water colour paint to do a wash of green.  Added some pink and green sequins and finished with a Hero Arts stamp.

I'm entering this into the Patterned Paper challenge at Virginia's View this month and this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp ~ Anything goes.
And Crafting when we can.... borrow a sketch 

Do come and join us at CCC Digi Creations and Creative  Craft Cottage
