Postcard 02/28/10

Okay, so I may have to post this card again tomorrow.  The picture didn’t come out very well and I think it is because it is not dry yet.  Anyway, here is how I did it.  I took more of the rubbings from the velvet art and put down a few layers on the postcard.  Then I added some rice paper layers.  I thought I had too many so I scraped some away.  Then I added watercolor paint to give it some color/  I left it to dry.  I came back and added a combination of silver paint and gloss medium.  Again, I took the picture while it was wet which is what I think accounts for the lousy picture.  The moisture presents too much shine.  Tune back in tomorrow for a replay once dry!
