Hello Foxy!

Day 2 of the Online Card Class – Watercolor for Card Makers

#Lovingthisclass

My card for today concentrates on a watercolour background using the emboss resist technique featured yesterday, it looks like I am going to be working a day behind, I really want to try all the methods and techniques, its just a pity I have to go to work all day, which only leaves me with around an hour in the evenings to play..

hello foxy

 

If you already follow my blog, you will recognise the wee foxy tag I added to the front of my watercoloured embossed background, it was part of my homework for class that I was practicing over the weekend.    He just fitted perfectly on this card, it was meant to be!

I will add a list of supplies at the bottom of this post, just incase you are interested in any of the products I used.

Happy….

This card has 2 meaings behind my inspiration for making it…

#1 Happy because I love to craft in my blue shed in my garden

#2 Happy to be participating in the Online Card Class – Watercolor for card makers

In class today, I learned several new techniques for creating water colour backgrounds, I went with the method by Jennifer Rzasa, i didn’t have time to do the stencil effect, however I will be trying this very soon!

For my background I chose 3 x colours :

  1. Peacock Feathers
  2. Wild Honey
  3. Squeezed Lemonade

The beach hut is a Paperartsy Stamp Set by JOFY and I painted this in at the weekend as practice/homework for theclass 🙂 and used distress markers Salty Ocean, Evergreen Bough and Iced Spruce.

The Happy die cut word is from Clearly Besotted Stamps.
