Allsorts - cherry on top

Welcome to a new challenge at Allsorts. This week I'm hosting and I set the theme to Cherry on top. It doesn't necessarily have to be a cherry but I want your project to feature some kind of fruit or berries. I went for strawberries. First attempt to make a watercolour background, turned out rather nicely. Image is a Clear dollar stamp.


We are sponsored this week by the Digistamp Boutique and Sizzix so hop on over to Allsorts for your chance to win.

Allsorts - red/white/blue

Welcome to a new challenge at Allsorts. This week the theme is Red/White/Blue. Since I normally use very soft and smudged colours this primary colour combo scared me a bit. But I rolled up my sleaves and dug into it and I'm pretty pleased with the result. I might try these rather strong colours again.
