I love playin' with my new paints! This little elephant is by Art gone Wild and he is perfect for coloring. I used papertrey white cs as my base. I added a little ground cover freehand and shadowed a light blue around him. The adorable sentiment (which I thought was perfect due to an elephants' size) is by My Favorite Things. It is in the "must have" essential sentiments set. I leave it out on my desk because I use them on almost every card!
Many of you asked yesterday about my new watercolor paints. This is what they look like. Nice and compact, the paints are about the size of a chicklet, they look like them too. Nice deep rich color in concentrated form, when I add water it gradually lightens the tone. I thought I'd show you a closed and open shot in case you were looking for it.
Yesterday a few of you asked how I did my rain on my card. It is simply done with crystal effect(aka diamond glaze, simple shine). I just did a little glob then pulled it upward to create a raindrop. It looks cool on the acetate because it acts like a little magnifying glass in the areas that have the drops. Neat effect.
Ok, ok.....I'm askin' again. What new cool toys did "Santa" bring you?
I also received some cash so I am looking into those flip camcorders so that I could do some video tutorials....we'll see.
