ONLY 23 DAYS TO ENTER



 
Who would have thought a card that looked so simple would take so long to produce. Spent all day yesterday looking for the papers  - already had an idea of what I wanted - it's like when you go shopping for a Special Outfit and you know what you want -you're never able to find it!  Changed the papers several times now and couldn't stop playing with more!

Well I have the idea of doing an African theme - looked up where Zebra's came from.  Didn't know there were different coloured Zebra's  - if you'd like to find out more click here for Wikipedia.

Then decided I'd have a go at watercolouring as it always looks so easy and affective  - hats off to those that can - mind were horrendous!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today started all over again and spent most of the day changing the design, altering design and colouring the zebra.

Still not sure if I like it or not but decided to enter it in Chrissy's DT call after all the time and effort I'd put into it!
