He sought for her heart

I made this 2.5" x 3.5" Artist Trading Card for the ATC Lotto on the ARTchix Studio Yahoo group. The current theme is 'Enchantment' and the winner will be drawn on Sunday, October 4th. Go to the ARTchix Studio website to read about how to participate this great Bi-Weekly challenge!

I have lots of Vintage images saved as jpgs on my computer and I thought, what if I printed some of these images out onto textured water color paper? My next thought was, sometimes ink jet prints run when they get wet, but what if I made them run on purpose? With that in mind, I used a wet brush on the background of this image and was rewarded with a lovely effect! I also splattered some H2Os (iridescent watercolors) on top of the background and added a quote from the ARTchix collage sheet Tell me a story. I do think it looks enchanting!


  1. Wonderful!! I love it, it is enchanting! Ooooh, gotta try that!
