Zodiac Betty - New release

It's time for a new release over at Simply Betty and this time the new release is all the great zodia signs!!! And WOW Betty went all out the images are just fabulous.

I will be giving them out to the 1st person who makes a comment on the picture that I will be posting on FB that shows their zodiac sign... so you will need to tell me your date of birth not the year just the date and that you want the postcard :)  Easy peasy right?!?  It's going on over at Simply Betty Fan group so you need to be there to win them!

I decided to make something totally DIFFERENT yup that's what I've been doing all year... but this is totally different from my previous makes it's some Postcards with the zodiac signs done with some glossy photo paper 4x6 and then I used my handmade alcool inks on them.  You can see how I made those with this video
Sorry if you have seen it already but I thought it would be awesome for those that missed it.  I'm pretty excited because I made all the backgrounds!  No DP used on these!!!

So here's my Aquarius:
