Experimenting with watercolours ~ Bambi water scene

Make it Colourful challenge this week is {Colouring a Water scene}
I have used SU stamps ~ Forest Friends SU ink & pens for the Bambi & the trees I used SU thing a ma jig & clear sheet to produce the images in the water I then coloured with water colour pencils & my water brush I have also used 'spots' technique from the last MIC challenge & had a go at some clouds but you cant see them very well in the picture.
It was nice to be able to do a little experimenting & crafting again after being so poorly. Hope you like it Helen xxx

CFS/ME awarness week Please help me raise awareness

As I have just recently joined twitter & have tweeted to JLC to ask to help raise awareness I thought I'd re share with you the pic of my knitted JLC with the real one!!!
CFS/ME is a devastating & debilitating invisible illness. I have been suffering now for ....oh many years, too many to count!
There are 250,000 people in the UK alone with CFS/ME  It causes among other symptoms: chronic fatigue muscle, joint & nerve pain concentration problems ~ brain fog disturbed sleep & sleep patterns
Due to government 'cut backs' CFS/ME services all over Britain are being stopped.
Help us campaign for York by following CFS / ME York on Face book & twitter or simply add the badge below to your blog for at least this week. You can link it to Action For ME My ME blog or our Face book page

Make it Colourful Challenge ~ {Black with a hint of red}

Make it Colourful challenge this week is Black with a hint of Red
So I had a dig about in my images that friends have sent me to see if I could find any inspiration & this one just jumped right out at me. After I had coloured it I wasn't sure what to do next. I just couldn't see a busy card so I've gone for clean & simple using SU's vintage vogue flowers stamp. I have coloured the image using promarkers.
Thank you for stopping by today, your comments always make me smile & I appreciate every one of them. Hugs Helen  xxx
