Inked Paws Challenge 1

Another First Challenge this time over at Inked Paws! Very excited and happy to be making a start into the world of Blog challenges with challenges also just starting out! Yay entering out on the road together!

So anyway this challenge has the theme "All Creatures Big and Small" and the team have very kindly provided two freebie images for us all to play with! I've started with Me and My friend however hope to have a go with the Duck Do (I think thats what it is called) later!

Now I'm afraid my colouring leaves a bit to be desired (I just used Distress Inks and water brushes as I don't yet used Images enough to invest in my markers and also haven't really got a clue what I'm doing, but hopefully it hasn't turned out too bad for a novice!

 So this was my card but unfortunately due to colouring with water it slightly distorted the paper shape and I ended up with the horrible ugly crease at the bottom of my image :-(!

 So needs must I got a paper flower and inked it in the same way and put a yellow button in the centre, however I thought that this yellow button was too yellow...
 ... So I went for this slightly lighter one instead, and while it still sticks out maybe a little too much at least it blends in and looks prettier than the crease so it will have to do!
 So here is a picture of my final card, I used some patterned paper, lilac pearl card, Nesties and the border and corners from my Parisian accents
 With that final touch of a bit of bling in the corners!
                 Different angle ^^
