OnlIne Card ClassWatercolor for Card Makers – Exploring Mediums

I’m sharing a few cards I made yesterday for the online card class.  This is the second class I’ve taken and I’m loving every minute of it.

Here are the cards for day one – Using Markers

After heat embossing with gold, I used my markers directly on the watercolor paper.

 The leaves on the right are the ones I practiced embossing and colored with distress markers.  The image on the watercolor paper are markers on the stamp and stamping on the watercolor paper spritzed with a mist of perfect pearls. The die cut leaves were colored with distress markers on the sheet and gold mist.  I also used a bit of washi tape and an old book page.  The background is a background stamp.  I used a distress ink pad.

My take on Kristina’s masking and adding a blue glow on the paper.  I noticed after I cut the watercolor paper that it was a little off center.  I still like it!  The You’re so thoughtful is a Unity Stamp.

Day Two – Traditional Watercolor

Laura Bassen gave us an introduction on Peerless Watercolor.  I tried several washes on watercolor paper and this is the one I liked the most.  She used a beautiful layering stamp, but I didn’t have one.  Instead I used the distress inks and rock-and-rolled several colors to achieve the variations.  I fuzzy cut the flowers and the butterfly and used the free flowers stamp from Unity Stamps

That’s all I’ve had a chance to create.

Until next time, happy crafting!
