WATERPAINTS AND A LITTLE LAMB



Hello Everyone...

It's all over for me...the long Easter weekend has finally come to an end and back to work today and it's going to be a long one...[sigh...]...but I had a lovely rest...[probably too long]...and ready to bounce [crawl] back to work..

But while I was off, and playing around in my craft area...I found a set of cheap water paints from the 123 shop....and decided to have a play with them so this is what I did.



Cute little Lamb image from Raising our kids  and coloured with water paints..except for the grass, I used copics on top as the green paint was a bit yucky...



A close up of the little Lamb.....



And the open card.....papers MME 'Happy Day'...Marianne fence..WOC flowers...and foam letters spelling Easter, and have no idea why I spelt Easter, but those puppies were stuck fast and could not change them..lol..



There's the tin of paints, and I really enjoyed playing with them and the Aqua brushes and may do it again....it drys very quick and you can touch up with pencils and copics after if the colour is a bit flat.

Going to enter into a few challenges...
