Here's what I've done today, for the current challenge at Smudgy Antics, plus a few others. I saw the challenge theme (Paint) last Monday, and thought, hmmmm, I've got a week, I could get out some real paints and not do a digital piece for a change. And then suddenly it was today and there are only a matter of hours left until the challenge ends! MEEP! So, it had to be digital, but I've tried to make it look very very "paint-y" and used lots of different textures and brushes. The image is Octopode from the Heebie Jeebie set at Smeared Ink.
These are the challenges I had in mind while creating:
Smudgy Antics - paint
The Pixie Cottage - sketch #87
Color Q - turquoise, celery, grey, poppy
Fairy Fun Fridays - masculine
Cute Card Thursdays - anything goes
Cards For Men - anything but square
My Time To Craft - kaleidoscope of colour
Totally Stampalicious - anything goes

Paint or not, it sure does not look digital. I though you had done it all by hand. Thanks for joining us at Colour Q this week
