Watercolor San Antonio Riverwalk

Winner at Eureka Stamps
Cards in Envy Favorite

Coffee of the Day - Dulce de Leche

I've been playing around in my craft room with my gelatos, watercolor paper, and digital images. it's so much fun to just get into an inky mess sometimes. :)

Problem is that photographs, at least mine, can't capture all of the sparkle, texture, and color of the actual image. in real life (irl) it is sooooooo cool!

I printed the San Antonio Riverwalk digi image from Eureka right onto my watercolor paper then went to town with both regular and metallic gelatos. I added details with my watercolors. the water has such a gorgeous shine that is hard to see in the photo.

papers are from the Basic Grey Dear Heart collection, linen thread and banner die are from SU!, sentiment stamp is from a company that is no longer in business, and sequins are from Lawn Fawn. ribbon snippets and vintage buttons are from my stash. acrylic paint edges the card base.

hope your weekend is off to a most fabulous start! thanks for stopping by! :)

I agree that a canvas is called for to keep this beauty forever! Awesome work and love love gelatos but as you say they do not photograph the actual beauty they produce but I am seeing it in my head as if what the camera caught wasn't enough LOL Absolutely fantastic job! Thanks for playing with us at Dragons Lair Designs Challenge and hope to see you in May! Nan, DT
