Online Card Class

Hi there! 

The newest online card class is called, Watercolor For Card Makers: Exploring Mediums and am I ever glad I signed up! It gave me the courage to try some techniques that I've never had the guts to try before. . . . and I even love my results!

This first card uses no-line water coloring - eek! If that isn't a scary technique, I don't know what is! But Kristina Werner shared an easier way to do it, so that gave me the push I needed to try. 

I used Simon Says Stamp's Bundle Up stamp and die set. 

Watercolor pencils are a medium I have never had much luck with either - actually, it would be more honest to say I suck at using them - lol! But once again, after watching Kristina use them in class, I gave it a try and had so much fun! 

That's one of my favorite snowmen. He's from Art Impressions. Isn't he the cutest?! And I used the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp for the background. 

Okay, one more. I also loved Dawn's video! Oh my goodness! Can that girl watercolor or what?! She has some amazing talent! So, out came my Gansai Tambi watercolors to use on these pretty Altenew flowers.

 I love the loose watercolor technique, letting some lighter shades spill out past the images.

I'm looking forward to Wrap-Up day in class. They always share more fun, and usually another video or two, or three, or . . . .

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend! ♥
