First up, it's time for The Craft Barn's 12th Q & L challenge, for which they gave us the words Proud and/or Vintage. I chose the word, Proud. Also, we are to use a Quote and/or, a Lyric in our work. My quote cannot be attributed to any one person, but is often used as inspiration in sports. Today is another chance to make yourself proud. I think it could be applied equally to almost any activity.
The second part of my 'twofer', is from the Summer Of Colour challenge, where this week, Kristin has given us Coral, Teal and a smudge, splash or pop, of Bright White to use. I had problems at first, getting my head around what the colour coral was and how I could make it. But with lots of input from the fabulous people doing the challenge and others on Facebook, I got there, (I think). Not sure I could get the same again mind you, lol.
I had lots of fun stamping the flowers & leaves, and then coloring the flowers with my coral watercolour paint and the leaves with my teal inktense pencil, using my water brush. I went over some of the outlines with a pen, to sharpen them up a bit.
Please click on the links if you would like to find out more about the challenges, and if you have time, it would be awesome if you could visit some of the other blogs and leave some love.
Thanks for looking;
and until next time...............
