Fairy Postcard from Cuba

Samuel is staying for a few days in a heliconia greenhouse, next door to where a band holds practice sessions. She's enjoying herself and taking in all of that color and delicious scent.

It is warm in Cuba, but with an ocean breeze that cools everything perfectly, though making her a tad homesick. But the music playing nearby fills her heart with joy.

Thanks for dropping by, see you soon, I hope. *smiles* Norma

    Your card looks very tropical, I could use the splash of color with the sad weather we've been having lately! :)

  10. Hi everyone! Well the paper is cigarette paper...I thought I'd dry it out for this fairy postcard. My cards are 2" X 3" so I had to first join 3 papers together and then ironed them flat. Then I did a watercolor painting but holy cow the paper w-r-i-n-k-l-e-s when it gets wet and I flooded it with washes. I ironed it out as flat as I could but it gave a crepe effect in the end. I touched it with colored pencils as well. What I learned is that cigarette paper prefers a dry touch. Also a light touch.
    Thanks so much for all of your comments about the paper. *smiles* Norma


Your comments make my day! Thanks for dropping by and we'll see you soon, I hope, *smiles* Norma
