The Heart Desires Challenge 9

Hello my friends!  Today I'm playing along with The Heart Desires Challenge for the first time.  I fell in love with this month's inspiration board when I saw it!

Delightful colors and images, aren't they!  This post actually has a lot of firsts.  First time playing with this challenge, first time using Newton's Nook Designs NEWTON LOVES COFFEE stamp set, and my first time attempting to no line color a critter image.

I've done a bit of no line coloring with floral images, and let me tell ya, that's a lot easier than animals lol!  I'm sure it's like anything though, practice makes perfect.  What I do love about this card is the layering of patterned papers.  I used Studio Calico Snippets Collection and Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid 6X6 paper pads.  The adorable kitty and sentiment are from Newton's Nook Designs NEWTON LOVES COFFEE stamp set.  I bought this stamp set ages ago but this is my first time using it.  I used distress inks to stamp the kitty and then watercolor it. 

Have you tried no line watercolor?  Any tips for me?  I know you can do it with Copic markers too, I might try that next :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
