Blast from the past

Whilst looking for my pearl pigments mica powder I came across my box of H20 paints.  It was a pleasant surprise and I had forgotten how lovely they are to work with.

So seeing as I have quite a few cards to make during this month I thought I had better make a start.

The first card is for my Dad and I went with this fun Snoopy image (my Dad's not into motorbikes but nevermind hahaha)

I've painted Snoopy's bike with H20s and Copic Sketch Markers and mat and layered using Bo Bunny papers.  I think the adverture and chevron stamps are also Bo Bunny.

ooops just noticed that I forgot to colour Woodstock in - haha he will of course be yellow!  tee hee

The next card is for a friend's birthday.  The background is pearl pigments mixed with water swooshed over the card with the script versamarked onto the card and pearl pigments brushed over the top.  The butterfly is painted using H20s.  You can't really see with my dreadful photographic skills but the card does have alot of shimmer on it.

I've another card to finish also using pearl pigments and H20s and I'll show you that tomorrow - when I've finished it. hahaha.

Happy mid-week everyone.

Isn't it funny how those "oops" moments suddenly look so obvious when you photograph something and put it on a computer screen? I'm pleased to hear Woodstock will be getting his fine yellow plumage! Love the swooshe pink on the second card, looks lovely with the blue butterfly!

I love it when you're off school as you've so much more time to craft and share :)
These are great. Fancy forgetting to colour poor Woodstock though....

I agree with Joanne - the number of times I only spot a mistake or smudge is when I'm looking at the photos on the screen

I love the Snoopy image - super card. And the H2Os are really good on that second card - you've reminded me that I ought to get mine out of the drawer. x
