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 :
- Peacock Feathers
- Wild Honey
- 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.
So glad I decided to take part in the class… it is so much fun!!!
Happy Watercolouring everyone!
thanks for popping round
Today in my workshop I tried my hand at a bit of water colour painting using watercolour pencils and an aquabrush.. I’m not much of a hand a drawing, but quite like this little 2 x 2″ piece 🙂
There is not much else on this card apart from watercolour paper and a small layer of light moss green bazzill textured cardstock.
I used the same watercolour paper for my card base as I did for the mini painting 🙂
Just a plain wee card for nice and clean simple look
One of a kind it certainly is… tried my hand at watercolouring this afternoon, as this method is being featured over on the Hero Arts Blog at the moment…
