Fleur De Lis Postcard

This is a Fleur De Lis Postcard that I did for a swap with my online art group, AAWA (An Affair with Art). I hope Sue enjoys it. I got a new little tool that has dies that creates the embossed Fleur De Lis and I had some little Fleur De Lis "buttons".  My friend, Jean gave me the die cuts in another swap with our group. I love all those die cuts and have really made use of them.

Mix It Monthly art Challenge for October

Over on The Mix is Monthly Site Here the challenge is to do some art with a crowd in it. A crowd being 3 or more people. She also challenged us to use the orange, yellow and blue colors with some texture.
Well last night after my dear hubby went to bed, I found a magazine picture again to inspire me in a fashion magazine. I found these 3 ladies dancing the tango. I thought that would be the perfect thing to draw! I had a real challenge with the lady who is looking down at the first girl's feet to learn the steps. I erased her many times but finally am somewhat happy with how I have her looking.
After I was happy with the girls, I drew them in with ink and did watercolors.
My texture is Liquitex Blended fibers texture gel. I inked over the gel when it dried. I especially like the stone floor with texture. The walls have texture too but not the girls themselves.
I hope that you enjoy it because it was really fun to do and the most relaxing thing I did all day.
