Metallic paint on black

I hope you all had wonderful family time over the holiday. Ours was a whirlwind of a weekend but I did manage to get started and made a few Christmas cards. Hope to add a few more today.

I finally found out where the new software sent my pictures. I have to move them manually to where I want them even though I told the software where to put them. No one ever listens to me! In a recent zoom we did painting with metallics on black watercolor c/s. Everyone's cards look so beautiful and here is one of the ones I made.

I used a Simon Says stamp and embossed it in gold. Then I used a very old set of metallic watercolors by Yasutomo. This is the first time I've used those paints and I do the love results I got. It is an inexpensive set of 21 colors I think I got at a craft store long ago. I splattered in gold and white paint.
I'll post the second one when I get it made into a card.

Well, to be Frank, I'd have to change my name.






Be kind to one another.
