Cards and Watercolors

I'm trying to compare these two cards. I stamped the image with VersaFine. The one on the left is on watercolor paper and the one on the right is on glossy cardstock. Then I used watercolor pencils on each, then applied water. Decided the colors weren't vibrant enough, so I also then used the Twinkling H2O watercolors over the watercolor pencils. I haven't decided which I like better. See what you think. I apologize for the lighting on the pictures.
~Bye for now.

More Metal Work

These pictures just don't do the box justice. This is a wooden cigar box that I painted. I put the metal over a mold, then used metal tools to form the metal into the shape of the mold. Then used wheels for the design around the edges. Then painted the metal, then applied it to the cigar box. Later, I added the vintage look of old postcards to the inside. I did this at a class taught by Lisa Bruno at My Heart's Fancy. TFL. ~Bye for now.
