Favourite colours.

Good morning all and thanks for popping in. 
We have made it , 
to Friday...
Hope you have a lovely weekend planned . 
It has been another busy week ,
Busy but enjoyable,,
Wednesday was our regular workshops in Hazel Grove and it was lovely 
to have a new crafter join us...
It was good to meet you Debbie and I am glad that you enjoyed the class and 
that you would like to join us again. 
We had a play with Distress Oxide ink pads...
It was good fun. 
Now today it is a new Challenge over at the 
Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog.
Our new theme is 

Favourite Colours..

Now I know you won’t be surprised when you see what colours I have used...
No prizes for guessing..
My lovely friend Beth is hosting this challenge..
Here is what I came up with..

I just went with my instincts...

I started with a piece of stencil card, and added some yellow Distress ink...

Followed by some orange, 

Some red, an then some brown...

I also blended some colour around the edges of the card to frame it. 

Next came some water spritzing , this time I used my fan brush . (Thanks Mandy )

Love this effect when the card has been dried . 

Using Stamps from PaperArtsy
These are  JOFY set 13.
I stamped on the design using black Archival ink plus on separate stamping card. 

I did the same with the dragonfly and the flowers .

I watercoloured these in using DI and water...
Then cut them out . 

Some matting and layering , background stamping , and finally some splatting with Inka Gold ....
I used Copped...and added some water to the pot. 

I added all my  cut out parts, plus the sentiment...
And finished off with some white Posca pen ...

Here is a closer look. 

I do love these funky stamps,,.so fresh...
And they make me smile..
We all need to smile...

I hope you will pop over to the Fussy and Fancy blog 

To see the rest of the dt samples...
And even better I would love you to enter..
I just love visiting all you wonderful blogs and seeing your fabulous art work...
I wonder which is going to be the most popular favourite colour...
What would your be? 

Now Karen ...I can hear you shouting from Scotland...
I must dash 
Lots to do , 
Have a wonderful weekend...
Much love and hugs..
