Without Words (DT) August

Well you know by now what the first Monday of the month means - it's a new challenge from

Before I tell you what this month's theme is, we have had a few questions about why the challenge is called Without Words when we do actually use sentiments - at the top of the challenge is the quote from Horace (a Roman poet) that actually inspired the creation of the challenge
"A picture is a poem without words"
which, when you consider that our focus is on handcoloured images and encouraging you to practice and improve your colourwork rather than hiding behind embellishments, you can see why that quote is so perfect.
But yes, we still use sentiments (because we can)!

Right then, onto our new theme and it is an old theme
The past challenges are all listed on their own page, so it is your choice this month, just remember to tell us which one you have chosen

I chose Beach Holiday from August 2013

This is Pollycraft Nipper from CC Designs
Coloured with Polychromos Pencils and Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Papers are from odd scraps of Basic Grey pads
and the sentiment is Casual Fridays

There are two years' worth of themes for you to choose from, so no excuses!

Hugs to all, Squirrel xx

Why does that little tinker look like he's about to pop that crab down someone's shorts for a quick nip!! He has that naughty look on his face! Fab card, and love the sentiment. Love his sun kissed hair too.
