I've stuffed myself full with chocolates and marshmallow rabbits to the max and I know serious walking and sweating is in the midst to burn all those calories off :) But hey it's easter so that's a good excuse to fill our stomachs with sweets :)
I'd like to share a card with all off you, it's not really stellar but I thought it would be really good to share this experimenting journey. I am still trying to master my hand in using distress inks and this is one of the cards I did. I was looking for hot pressed watercolor paper, a couple of the DT girls use this paper because of the smooth surface, but it costs a fortune :( luckily I was able to find a small artshop here in Singapore that sells 'em :) I did buy the cheapest among the lot since I am still on the learning curve. The cold press paper is also good because of the textured effect and I also like this effect on this image. At the moment I have three papers I am using, I like to keep them handy because sometimes my mood changes :) So I have the Daler Rowley Aquafine Coldpress 300gsm, Canson Watercolour Pad 200gsm and Schut Aquarellebloc Hot Pressed 300gsm.
On this card, I used the Daler Rowley Aquafine Coldpress 300gsm paper. It's still quite messy but like my previous card, I kinda like it :) What I did to make it a bit messy is to outline the image with Weathered Wood. The few images I did also with Distress Inks I have not lined and it looks really good too :) I will share some soon but in the meantime here's my card :)
