The most recent creation is the little bunny below. I painted her on watercolor paper using NeoColor II watercolor crayons and acrylics, along with using washi tape, collage pieces, stamping and a few texture tools.
Below is the front and back of the card after color copies were made. In my experience, the copies are always a bit darker than the original. I still like the way they look, but will continue to play around and experiment with printing options.
Besides printing cards, I printed additional color copies of my favorite painted pages to create bookmarks and magnets. I backed the bookmark designs with black paper and will laminate them prior to gifting them. The last batch (not shown), I added a pretty ribbon with beads along the top. I think I will add some pizzazz to these by doing the same. The round pieces along the top of this photo are magnets. I love how they turned out and they were super easy to make! Simply trace the glass dome on desired paper, cut out, then adhere to the dome with matte gel. Add a magnet to the back using matte gel and you're done! Super easy, but so cute and usable.

Here's a close up of the magnets. I may have to keep this set and make another for gifts. ;P
|Super fun and easy magnets.|

In the meantime, I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving and will have a great upcoming week! Happy Paint Party Friday...just a few days late. lol.
