My First Card Challenges....

So my first few challenges have meant colour...first to design an all black and white card with only colour in the image....and from my favourite digi artist Dustin Pike! I hope I get to win some of his stamps :)
I'm not thrilled with the results...but I don't have a good copic black yet so had to use watercolours...and the flash on the camera washes it out a little...live and learn.


The second challenge was for a pink card....I immediately thought of the piggie I got from a children's artist...but having made it, Steve wondered who would want to get a card with a pig on the front...so I tried one with a butterfly for valentine's day...which do you like better??

Finally, I made the card for a friend of an image I had coloured e-ons ago but hadn't done anything with yet...it is my favourite one...too bad no challenges for this one ....yet!
