Fluttering by

 This is my 2nd post today.

I had time today to just sit and play.  I knew I wanted to test out my new
Tim Holtz Distress pencils so went into that huge contained of
already stamped images and found one with a butterfly and played.
I found I liked the method of taking the water brush to the
pencil the best.  I did not use watercolor paper which is
supposed to be the best and look forward to trying that. I then
went to Sketch Saturday and pulled out one of my snippet boxes. I added
a bit of stenciling to tie it together for some of my favorite challenges
that I have neglected lately.  

A few fun challenges:
Butterfly Challenge # 174: #1 Butterfly & 4 colors: Cyan, Chartreuse, Canary, Chili red 10/25
Snippets Playground #439 : all snippets except card base 10/29

Birthday card


Celebrated our granddaughters 3rd birthday this weekend. I made this
card for her using MFT's Beautiful Girl set, My Mind's Eye paper, frame
die by Pawsitively. Was a fun day celebrating and visiting with people
we don't get to see very often.

JDS-Candy Corn Witch

 It's a new month so a new challenge at Jan's Digi Stamp Challenge.

I had fun creating with her Candy Corn Witch.  I arranges the pre-colored
candy to make a digital background and then I colored the witch with 
Copics.  I made a swing for her and die cut the sentiment. A strip of
Wash tape to add interest and I was done.

Check out the challenge an the creations of the design team here.
