Virginia's View #13, 30 Day Coloring Challenge and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge

IMG_7589


Playing with Peerless Watercolors for Virginia's View Challenge #13.
Donna Mikasa sent me some samples of her Peerless to play with and after much hesitation (I think I honestly thought I was going to break them--LOL) I dipped in with a wet paintbrush and was amazed by the vibrant and gorgeous colours. Especially that hot pink! So I did a little emboss resist using the Floral Butterfly stamp from Serendipity Stamps.



This is my Day 8 colouring for Kathy Racoosin`s 30 Day Color Challenge.
I am trying to sketch out of my comfort zone and get a bit messy with colour. 
All the details can be found HERE on her blog The Daily Marker.

I am also submitting this to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Things That Fly!


I am also adding this card to the Time Out Challenges #26: 1st Birthday.




I want to also say hello to two really creative designers and my newest followers. Please visit their blogs, you won't be disappointed!

I feel like you're channelling your inner Donna Mikasa here - she uses these colours a lot and they look beautiful here - bold and bright! I hope you'll bring these to our playdate (I guess you will, since you're hosting! lol!)

Of course, you know I'm swooning over the butterfly, but a butterfly paired with these vibrant colours - and created by you...oh my! Breath-taken-away gorgeous! Way to go on the challenge! I didn't know about it until a couple days ago; perhaps I'll focus on adding colours to upcoming challenges (actually, I'm all stenciling-obsessed). Colouring = wonderful therapy!
