Daisy Doodles Sketch Challenge

Just wanted to remind you all of the Daisy Doodles Sketch Challenge going on.  Miss Daisy is adding a brand new digital stamp to the prize package.  The challenge runs until 7 pm EST Saturday.  Here is what you can win:

The challenge is a sketch challenge using this sketch:

I couldn't resist playing with this new image.  I paper pieced it and wasn't happy with my paper piecing (I am just learning) so I decided to try and color it using watercolor pencils and an aqua brush.

The image is called Home..sweet home and is just being released today.  I had tried several times to watercolor digis with no success.  Tried embossing off the printer and heat setting but the ink still wanted to bleed.  I am an instant gratification kinda girl and didn't have any fixative so started experimenting with things I had on hand.  I have a Prismacolor colorless blender pencil which I have not had luck with when coloring with my pencils but I thought I would try it on the image to prevent the ink from bleeding...and it worked.
I traced over the lines with the pencil and when I watercolored with my aqua brush it didn't bleed.  I am just learning to watercolor so forgive my coloring.  But this is a fun image to play with.  And you can win it at
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges Blog.  You have until Saturday at 7 pm EST to enter.
