A new challenge - well for me!!

Hi lovelies,
Wow I can't believe it is 1st October since I last posted on here, where on earth does the time go to I wonder?
Well, I just popped in to tell you all my little bit of news.
I entered the DT call at Creatalicious Challenges and I am pleased to say they offered me a place.
If you don't know Creatalicious Challenges - why not pop over and follow their blog.
There are monthly challenges with some fabulous prizes.
Creatalicious is a truly international Design Team with members from all over the world.
Please stop by and say hi to the other two new DT members whilst you're there.
I don't think you can ever follow enough challenge blogs do you?
So their current challenge which doesn't end until 14th November (still time to join in then!!) is:
So I thought I would join in with a little bit of inspiration for you and here they are:
First card is made using Dr Digi's Captain Thunderpants
Coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils, I simply added a computer generated sentiment and a piece of black bobbly thread.
Challenges for Captain Thunderpants:
The second one is made with Wizz-Doodles
Again coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils.
The background is done with distress ink spray stains and the backing paper which started out as cream is also sprayed with the stains.
For the little clouds around his hands I just painted out the stain with a paintbrush and water.
The little "Wish" word is from That Craft Place (Facebook shop), painted with black acrylic and sprayed with irredescent spray and sparkle.
I shall enter Wizz-Doodles in to the following challenges:

So, hope to see you back here next month for the next Creatalicious Challenge.
