Got Paint? Lots and lots... Caardvarks challenge




Got paint? Indeed I have, and I love to paint with watercolours, acrylics and 3d paints.
The first card is an old re-vamped card. I have painted the little girl with watercolour and acrylics, and attached ribbons to her hat (thanks to Chris for yummy ribbons!).
The second image is a happy mermaid, painted with 3d Pebeo paints. These images decorated many peasant houses in the old times in Russia, and they were usually carved in wood on window sills as protectors bringing good luck to the house.
That's why I thought the wood imitation paper from Daisy D's was an appropraite background for my mermaid.
They weren't your silly zero size girls with skinny tails but happy fat women or more traditionally built, using PC language, lol.
