POSTCARD CHALLENGE 2012 - CHINA

This week I failed to come up with an idea until yesterday, at first I was thinking dragons abs new year and then it hit me... I love bonsai trees and in the past have owned a couple!
I decided that I would draw the tree on water colour paper and paint the image I created.
I must mention that I have not drawn anything in a very long time, art was something I really enjoyed but I didn't pick it as an option.
So once I had drawn the image I painted it in garden green and chocolate chip using an aqua marker and then mounted the image on card. I added the word China to the bottom left hand side.
On the back if the card I have written -

I hope you like the card and thanks for looking!
