Technique Play - Watercolor for Card Makers Part One

Wow! I am finally taking the time to post on my blog. It's been a wild and crazy spring at our house. In February I started taking a class to get my license to operate short wave radio. It was a lot harder then it seemed but I passed my test two weeks ago, I've received my call sign… KG7LET (in case you are as strange as I am and you want to know), and I'm currently shopping for a radio. That being said, I have a little more time to document my crafting fun. 

Currently, I am completely enamored with the new Watercolor for Card Makers class that is happening right now on I've taken most of the classes they offer but this is by FAR my favorite class I've ever signed up for. It seems from others that I am not alone in this sentiment either. If you haven't signed up, it's not to late. 

Here are a couple of cards I've been working on for my "homework" this week. We are learning different ways to create watercolor backgrounds. 

While there are many different mediums that work well with water, I'm quickly falling in love with my Windsor Newton watercolor box. I love how portable it is and the colors are gorgeous. Here's a couple photos of it.

This first card uses removable liquid masking over this fun Hero Arts butterfly. So easy to accomplish and I love the effect.

This second card uses heat embossing resist for the background. Again, these colors make me sing a little bit…ok a lot bit...

I'll be back with more watercoloring "homework" tomorrow. Hopefully…I'll see you in class!

Happy Stamping!!
