A Male Card - for My Hubby

Hi everyone,

I thought I would pop in to show you something a little different for me. Yes its a dreaded male card, no flowers, no lace, no ribbon eek!

My hubby's birthday was last week and I had  a play with Brushos. I bought them after seeing several demos at the NEC in November and I've only just got around to playing with them. My first few attempts did go in the bin mind and I still need a lot of practice. 

I created the painting with the help of a DVD, so I can't take all the credit.

I drew the owl myself, its not perfect but not too bad for my first attempt. I have also used some Watercolour Ground and masking fluid. The masking fluid enables you to leave white areas and the Watercolour ground gives some texture.

 I hope you like it.

Thank you for popping in.
