WATERCOLOR TREE

In the online watercolor class, Jennifer showed a fun technique for doing a freehand tree by splattering paint.  I just used the three primary colors for my tree - red, yellow and blue - and when they blended there were many colors.
Will try this again with another tree, but really enjoyed making this card.  Will put "birthday wishes", "congratulations" or whatever on the inside when needed.

Supplies:
Paper: HA; PTI; Strathmore cold press
Stamp: Technique Tuesday
Other: Crayola watercolors

Thanks for visiting and your kind comments.  Betty

  7. Wow - this is just stunning, Betty! I am behind on class so haven't got to this lesson but can't imagine making anything as lovely as this! The splatters and off centre tree look fab :) The current challenge at Addicted to CAS is Off the Edge and this design would be perfect.....
