A few days ago I finally took my friend's (Barb G.) advice and signed up for Deepti Malik's watercolor class on Craftsy. The half-price offer was also a strong motivator. So far am so impressed - Dee is an excellent teacher - learned so much just from the first lesson! My advice - run don't walk and enroll in this class if you want to learn more about how to watercolor on your cards!
Since the challenge this week at Merry Monday is watercoloring, I used some of my new found info on my card.
Used my Kuretake Gansai watercolors on some Canson paper to create the background. First did the light in a wet on wet wash, and when that was dry added the darker shades. The poinsettias were white embossed on vellum and then fussy cut. The sentiment is three layers of die cut. Added a bit of gold thread and some sequins to finish it all.
Am also entering this in the Addicted to Stamps Challenge #163 which is "holidays" and Time Out Challenge #40 which is "CASE Tracey".
Thanks for stopping by today and love reading your kind comments. Betty
