Christmas Foliage

 Hello.. How's your Sunday going?

It's cold one today but so far no snow in my neck of the woods.

Well, I said I would share a couple more painted cards and here they are...

I've had fun doing these, though there were a few attempts that never made it, painting on cardstock can be a struggle. It's getting the right consistency of watercolour as any big images like the holly leaves can dry quickly and the colour doesn't blend - Too wet and it just doesn't work at all.

The next one (very similar) doesn't have a sentiment as I honestly think I'm going to keep it as a reminder of my first attempts

I recently bought a small pad of Fabriano extra white watercolour paper which I've yet to try... It not as white as the cardstock is and that's the compromise - I love bright white

I'll let you know how it goes... right now the cold is affecting the arthritis in my hands so I can't paint. I bought myself a pair of those compression gloves to help but I only had them 2 days and I've lost them! I tell 'ya things just keep on disappearing here Lol!

Take care of yourselves and enjoy your day
