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.

Happy 1

So glad I decided to take part in the class… it is so much fun!!!

Happy Watercolouring everyone!

thanks for popping round

Spring Flowers Watercolour Card

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
