Double Bubble Bingo Challenge!

Good Morning Bloggers!
Me again, and this week we have a Double Challenge over at Through the Purple Haze......  so Two Sponsors, and Two prizes up for grabs..... and it is luvverly and easy, cos they are both along the same lines.. so lots of scope for playtime!

The Sponsors are.... Crafts and Me and Lacy Sunshine, both have some stunning digis.... and the challenge is Bingo themed!  Trust me though .. it is easy peasy! :-)

All the details are over at the Through the Purple Haze blog (link at the top of the page)  but we were all given a bingo card to play with and we had to pick a line, in any direction, and ONLY use those items!  Talk about less being more... this was a bit of a challenge for me I can tell you!

So.. here is the Bingo Card......
Now.. I am on Team B (yayyy go the Bee's!!!)  and we got to play with an image from Crafts and Me......   My image is by the very talented Hannah Lynn....  Now I have to confess, I hadn't heard of them before, but OH WOW!!!!  I sorta wish I wasn't on the DT so I could play along and try to win this week... the images are DIVINE!!!!  My Crystal Ball tells me I might be spending a few pennies in their shop!!!  The quality of the digi stamps is amazing!

So.. I took my image, and I selected my Bingo Line..... Ribbon, Three Papers and Pearls.....  I printed her at almost A4 size onto some Pastel Printing Paper I found during a clear out, and I painted her with my scrummy watercolours... and I have to say I was thrilled with how the painting went... the pastel paper is divine to paint onto.. will have to google and find out where I can get some more from.. I think I have a new addiction......

Enough waffle...... here is my entry.......

Isn't she sassy!!!!  I adore her attitude!

I had so much fun making this..... got glue everywhere mind you trying to stick the mulberry paper down!!! ..... I am rather pleased with how she turned out.....

OK... over to you... Now as this is a double challenge..... you have no excuse for not joining in.....  jump over to TTPH blog, read all the rules, and get playing......  oh... and there is a little bit of an inter team challenge going on this week.. just for fun... so please remember to vote for your favourite DT sample!!!!

Have a luvverly crafty week..... see you soon! Hope you like my DT entry this week, and it would be great if you left me a message!!!

Floppy Latte..... butterflies and other garden lovelies

Good Morning!
First off.. Huge Apologies to all the Through the Purple Haze Blog entries for last week... Stunning stunning work, but Mr Blogger has been hating me, and I have been unable to comment or do very much at all really... including pre schedule this post... I just hope you can all read it! :-)
Grrr to technology.. love it when it works.......

So this week....  The wonderful sponsor is Floppy Latte.....  what an a amazing site.... stunning digi's, you have to go look if they are new to you!

Keeping it short (so as not to upset Me Blogger too much) so here is my DT piece for this week!  I hope you like it...... Not done parchment for a while, and it felt good to drag all the tools out and play.   I worked on Black, which is one of my favourite techniques, and of course I used pencils!  Derwent Coloursoft.. in my opinion the best pencil for parchment as it blends without accidentally embossing as you go!

Right.. off you trot.. link at the top of the page..... Hope you all play along!
Hugs all
