Water colouring

Hi Everyone, I'm on line - today - I hope it will last 'til I get my new 'puter, I'm going to to 3 posts today - in case! You'll have to wait for 2 though LOL.

Anyhow, my card today is a progressive challenge at Art by Miran and this little lady has to be coloured in by hand!!!!!!!!! I took this on as a real challenge for me, you know I am a digi colourer and it's my first love.

I have Reeves Water Colour Pencils and not many of them, at least there are a few colours to choose from. Off I went paintbrush in hand and painted the colour from the pencil to the image, spreading it out with a wetter brush. I admit it's not good, but I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. I decided on a different colour choice for me. I added 3D gloss to the bubbles and her eyes. added a piece of matching card embossed with a bubble embossing folder, punched out a border, used my brand new die which was a freebie with a magazine, it's been layered twice, it was the only way I could get it out of the die, and both layers came out together. I even layered cling film to remove the card out of the die, I wasted a few pieces of card until I tried the 2 pieces together. I would NOT be beaten LOL.
