St. Patrick's Day Dragon

Hey I am getting better it's been less than a month since my last post. While I was thinking about it thought I would show you a card I did this past weekend. This little guy is cute isn't he. I just love it when Whimsey Stamps comes out with a new release. I usually buy a few. This time I didn't get any Elizabeth Bell design ones but got a couple of Crissy Armstrong's and a new Artist they have Heidi Schwoerer which I have seen her images somewhere and now I don't remember I look at so many dang sites. Well anyways this little guy is "Bart on St. Paddy's Day" you just got to love him huh. Another thing I have been complete stuck on lately is water coloring with my Tim Holtz Distress Markers... Love love love em. I was really hoping that they would come out with the 12 colors that were special edition and now they are part of their color line at the last CHA but I never saw them on any of the sites that I was keeping track of for preorders. So if someone has any info on that let me know. When I first tried them I didn't really like them but as previously stated the Canson Monteval Spiral Pads are just the best for Watercoloring. I tried getting the smaller pads but I go through them way to fast. I bought 4 of them at Jerry's Artarama cause they had the best price of anywhere I found them at but you got to make that shipping worthwhile which is why I bought 4. I am on my 2nd one currently I already went through one. You can fit quite a few images on one page. These were bigger so I could only fit 6 per page of these ones. Ok wow was I rambling or what. Ok this image was colored with Distress Markers. I used Liquid Applique on the suds of my beer. I thought about making my Beer green but went with traditional colors instead cause I already had so much green. Isn't he too cute though.. Ok have a great week and stay warm.. TTFN
