I'm a happy challenge bunny today - I was half way through making my entry for this week's Out of a Hat Creations Challenge when I logged on last night and saw that this week's Artful Times Challenge also fitted perfectly with my little creation ...
The Out of a Hat challenge is to use either their chosen picture (or any other picture) as inspiration for your piece. Now I'm not very confident with colour but to me this hot orange has the wow factor so I thought I'd give it a go ...
The Artful Times Challenge is "Time"
The only orange ink I have is Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink, so I brayered a piece of card with it then stamped the Hero Arts butterflies in Adirondack Watermelon (had it for months but was still in the wrapper!).
I've toned it down a bit with dark grey - using the Tim Holtz Clock and Bird dies.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend. Thankfully it has been a dry and mostly sunny day here today - I spent the afternoon doing a car boot sale to raise some funds for my son who is going on an expedition to Madagascar next summer. Honestly, kids these days don't know how lucky they are - we'd have been happy going to a caravan for a week!
Thanks for visiting.
