Ching-Chou Kuik June Challenge - All Creatures Great and Small

Good Morning and welcome to my post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. You may have seen yesterday that the new challenge went live for this month and our challenge this time to for you to use animals of some kind in your project.

I chose to use the gorgeous Swing in Spring, which has a little cat on it. I'm not very confident with colouring large animals, apart from butterflies, so I opted for a little one this time. I think I need to practise my animal colouring a bit more though!
