Playing with water colours and mirror board

 Good morning to you all . This morning i'm sharing with you 2 of my latest makes using my water colour pencils for the first time. I had great fun using them and the effects i think have turned out great . How ever i havn't had the courage to add water to them so have left them just coloured as pencils . Will have to experiment soon !!!

 My 1st card is using a Digi from Lacy Sunshine  " Eleanor and Pickles popcorn time " And being a new Sunshine Girl for Lacy Sun shine what other images would i use lol .
They are just 2 of the wonderful characters you will find at the shop . . I used bight colours to colour the image so thought i would have to follow the colours to create my card . The colours i used were bright pink and lime green and found they work really well together .

 With the colours in mind i decided that i would make the card stand out more by playing around with some mirror card , which i used to frame and embellish my card. The final touch was some bright pink ribbon . I think its turned out a bit fab and funky ...What do you think ?? 

My 2nd Card is also a stamp from 
" Eleanor and Pickles a mammoth ride "

 This card i really wanted to show off the image so i have not made it to fussy but have again used mirror card to bring in some shine .
The image was coloured with my water colour pencils and i found it was really easy to get a fur like effect on the mammoth .

I added a simple greeting which was made on the computer and as before just limited embellishment cut from some mirror board .

Thank you all for popping by and hope you all have a wonderful week end .

Luv and Hugs 
Your Sunshine Girl
