I'd stamped this image earlier in the week because I wanted to use it for a card, but I was waiting for the WT challenge to see if I could fit it in. Paints - yes, I could :D. I got out my watercolour paints; after all, what could bring back memories of painting in school than pan paints, if it's not the squeezy bottles of liquid poster paints.
A2 cream base sponged with Soot Black. Image stamped on watercolour paper with Versafine Black and coloured with Winsor & Newton Artist's Watercolours. I added Glossy Accents to the camera lens and flash, and the mice's paws and noses.
HA sentiment with a brad in the centre and popped up on foam.
In keeping with last week's WT to recycle I decided to try punching the sheet of paper from the top of a box of chocolates for my photo corners, and it worked really well. I had to punch firmly and quickly, but it gives a lovely bit of dimension and no weight at all.

Love so many of the elements of your card- the watercolouring, the corners, and also the way you darkened the outer edges of both the painted panel and the base. It all gives the "feeling" of something that could be in a photo album!
