Watercolor For Card Makers Day #3

Hi there!

This is hopefully gonna be a quick post. It's late and I've got a crazy weekend coming up, so I need to get some sleep. I feel so far behind, not just with the online class, but with everything in my life right now. This always happens when I work more hours during a week. I'm really looking forward to Monday when things get back to a normal schedule!

On day 3 of the Watercolor For Card Makers class, Jennifer McGuire shared a fun technique for stamping with watercolors. I created a similar card but chose more vibrant colors for my background.


I used a new Hero Arts clear stamp set that I love. It's called, Sunshine Daisies. The flowers in this set are awesome!

Here's a close-up:

 

This class is so fun and I'm really enjoying playing with all the different watercolor techniques! I've created another card for Day 4 but haven't photographed it yet. Hopefully soon!

Thanks for your visit! ♥

You've done an amazing job on this technique, Barb! Your 'sunshiney' background is perfect with your beautiful daisy! (I just bought this set too, and can't wait to ink it up!) I'm so glad you were able to take a few minutes to share this card with us...hope everything goes smoothly this weekend, too!
