Different seasons

Here is a simply coloured SU image for the challenge at CAS Watercolour.
I stamped the image, masking off the sentiment, so that I could add my own. I used Watercolour pencils and a waterbrush to add colour and made a sentiment on the computer with a font to reflect that of the newsprint in the image.

This next one is for the challenge at ABC Christmas

The image is from A Day for Daisies, and as the teddy is inside the stocking, I thought that it would qualify for the 'I for inside' part of the challenge.
It was simply coloured with alcohol markers (I say that rather than using any particular brand name , as I have had many different sets of markers, some of which have dried up over time and been tossed, so I mix and match the brands to try to get the colours I want.)
I added a little Fun Flock to the band on the stocking for a little more interest, so I am also entering this into the TEXTURE challenge at Addicted to CAS
