Hey all here is my little space this week
I haven't been doing so much its been busy hanging out with friends. Managed to make a few new digital images for my little shop Limited Runs they will be added in later this week. So here is my space got my atc card with some lovely tags and a stunning card from Cindy thank you.
I Know it's been forever it seems but I had to join into Woyww For the big 10 year celebration
I'm still around just not been on my blog much been still creating stuff and mostly drawing out a lot of ATC cards to swap with online groups so it has been fun trading with other artists for sure my collection of WOYWW cards are in the little dark blue box up on the top shelf on my desk it has room for lots more so If you would like to trade with me I will make a few custom cards up for this special occasion

Our Challenge this round at Incy Wincy is all about the boys, this is one of the newest images from Limited Runs - Lighthouse #1 , We also have another Sponsor Fabrika Fantasy too so you will have 2 chances to win. Here's a little ATC I made up using Watercolours to colour it up.
Here is my little Review on Monte Marte Watercolours Paint Two Seasons. I bought these paints on sale too good of a deal to not give them a try and these are not to bad they are a soft wash of colours they have some great tones for those that like to paint softer looking colours. You can find them on Amazon Here . But I bought these for only $8 at Homesense so you can find for a cheaper price if you just look around.
This set has a Gold and Silver Colour in them too which is a nice little bonus for those who what to try out a metal colour.
Stock Photo Used
I just made up a quick little sample sheet of all that come in this set to
give you an idea of what they have. Leaving the colours as full pigment as I could
These paints aren't bad and Some of the colours feel like they been mixed with White,
and aren't that transparent as a pure colour but work good for shading.
Below is a example of the paints as you can see they feel muted to me little bolder in real life but this gives you an idea.
Sorry the Photo Went MIA when I paint up another will share it here
Pros about these
Had Metallic colours included which is a nice surprise and like the washed out colour pallet to play with.
Few Cons about these
Now I did notice a few of the paints have a funny little smell when I used them from the tube and put it on a pallet but that went away once it dried up must be something they use in the process to create the paint. Also Might be the fact the the only thing keeping the air out of them is the lid not sealed air tight.
I also put some paint in half pans they seem to be very shiny and don't like staying in them very well and fall out a lot , they look like plastic paint. They still work fine just funny they won't stay in the pans if dropped about. Also they have been in there for a couple days and everytime I've opened the container you can smell the off gases what do they use to make them stink?
So over all these are pretty low end paints but great for a student learning and they will paint just lightly like they all are mixed with white
The paints also didn't seem to be mixed very well as water came out at first then paint showing separation or the way the store handled them
Would I buy these again maybe have to think about it.
Our challenge this week is to use Ribbon and I didn't want to take away from the colouring I did on this image it seems a little magical with the watercoloured BG. I've been becoming addicted to use watercolours. So you can work with a digital image and play with your watercolours to get some sweet effects.
Finishing off my Guest Design work for Kinda Cute. this month. It's been fun playing with these adorable images. This is from Cat Digital Stamp Set , I'm using them all up making some no line colourings of these cute kittys so I thought to make a set of matching cards
FYI for those trying this print it in the lightest shade so you can still see the image and use pencils over the edges or markers to give it a hand drawn feeling
these are all done with pencils and a fine tip micron pen which I thought was lighter but turned out darker but it worked out fine
We are having our 10 year anniversary at Incy Wincy and my little store Limited Runs is the proud sponsor of this challenge and there will be 2 winners this challenge with the lucky peeps picking $10.00 Worth of images from the shop So pop on over and join us !!
