I'm here once again, very late at night, but I wanted to share my cards from days 8 and 9 for the Watercolor For Card Makers class.
On day 8, Tasnim shared a video using a technique where you stamp an image with a soft ink color, then add your watercoloring. Here's my take:
It's a tiny card measuring only 2 3/4 by 3 1/2 inches. I am loving these smaller sized cards, especially when using watercoloring - it's a lot less intimidating! I used a pretty stamp from a set called Night and Day Flowers by Hero Arts.
The lesson on day 9 was scary at first! It was Freehand Watercoloring! No stamping involved. Just the paints, a brush and my own hand. I didn't think I could do it but Jennifer Rzasa showed a technique with water and splattering to create a colorful tree, and after watching her video I thought maybe I could do it after all.
This was my second try. I went a bit too far on my first one, not knowing (or wanting) to stop the splatters. :) I really like the way this turned out and it was so fun! I thought the sentiment from the Color and Sunshine set by Simon Says Stamp was perfect for my tree.
That's it for me. As always, thanks for coming by - I really appreciate it! Night. . . . ♥
