Sunday Postcard Art - Stripey Legs


The challenge at Sunday Postcard Art this week is "Stripey Legs".  I used acrylic paints for the background.  Words, images and card edges were outlined with charcoal pencil and smudged.  The circles are punched paper and the dancer's legs were colored using a Pitt pen and white Sakura pen.  Words were computer-generated.  To see more "stripey legs", check out this Sunday Postcard link.  Fun theme!

Beautifully done Dianne! I love Pitt pens - they never let me down! Id your Sakura pen a "souffle"? I find mine won't write on acrylic paints... =(
