Water Colours at BBB.




Thank you to everyone who has been joining in the challenges   at Back to Basics and Beyond  this fortnight we would like to see you use watercolours.  

This isn't a medium I use so kept the watercolour element to a minimum, using Aquamarkers to create background shading.
The penguin dies were free with a craft magazine last year and the sentiment die from Creative Crafting World.


We would love you to join in, pop over to the challenge site and see the other Design Team makes , look forward to seeing you there.

I think you did a great job on the watercolor background, looks delicate and wintery, a great scenery for the penguins.
