Lily Pad Digital Challenge2

 The Lily Pad has set another digital challenge, this time sponsored by Hero Arts with Shari Carroll being the  guest designer.  They supply you with a free digital die cut to use on your card, unfortunately I don't own a digital die cutting machine so have had to cut everything by hand.
I have used the camera image and the film strip image, with some Hero Arts digital butterflies. I have coloured the butterflies with copic markers, the background paper is by prima.  To give the camera extra dimension I have added some glossy accents.



































I also found time to have a play at water colouring with distress inks as shown by Shari here, this months challenge over at the Hero Arts blog is Wedding and Congratulation cards and the featured technique is water colouring.  This card is very tall and thin, I found them at my local Craft store and thought they would be fun for a change.  Sorry about the photograph I have found it hard to get a good shot of this card, so have had to take it outside and it seems to blend into the background a bit.

Hope you are having a good week.
