OUCH! happy birthday

Saturday July 8, 2017
My brothers birthday is Monday and he is turning 65 so thought this would be perfect for him.. LOL
OK So a few months back Kristina Werner was doing water color techniques with Prang watercolors.. They're cheap paints and can be found at Michaels.. She got hers at a grocery store.. they are that cheap.. So I passed on my Kuretake paints and used the Prang.. I mixed some colors to get the blue/green cactus and pot colors. I like the way it came out.
I first heat embossed the My Favorite Things pots/cactus and sentiments in white. Then I painted the images and dried. I painted the background. I added some Nuvo drops and mounted it on a piece of redish cardstock to go with the cactus blooms. I will be using these paints again and again..
