Morning all day 3 of the easter hols and counting lol !!! todays card is for a new challenge at crafts and me where our challenge this week is to use butterflies and bows on your card ,i have used one of my fave sara burrier images she is called porcini and is stunning isnt she ,i was so pleased with how this turned out i do love digi images as they are instant and when it comes to crafting me has no patience lol but i dont like being limited to using copics and as much as i love my copics some images just scream distress inks at me so i printed the image on my usual watercolour paper and left it for over a week and when i came to paint it surprisingly it was fine no smearing at all impressive eh !! in the past i have tried leaving them overnight but they smeared so i gave up and stuck with copics but i really wanted to paint this one so i tried again and wooo hooo success !! i know a lot of people emboss the image and then paint but i cant be bothered with all that and im not that keen on embossing anyway so as long as i plan ahead problem solved !!
so here she is porcini painted with distress inks ,papers are from a gorgeous pad from the scrapcake that i discovered this week very yummy !!
