More Watercolor for Card Makers - Intermediate Techniques
I had some time to watch another lesson from this wonderful class and give it a try and I really enjoyed it! In Lesson 2, Dawn taught us how to embrace the water and its unpredictability! I used Peerless Watercolors and Canson Aquarelle watercolor paper for this one. Here is my version of the pear background that she taught in class...
As usual, one wasn't enough so I had to try some more. I was thinking about Easter and Peeps and tried the technique using Peeps for my background design. I tried using multiple colors but didn't like multi-colored peeps so I gave up and didn't go too crazy with color on this one. I used Koi Watercolors and Strathmore watercolor paper. I used fun foam to pop up the letters. They are from MFT and I thought the tiny holes in the letters wouldn't work with the fun foam, but they did and perfectly! Here is the card...
Since I had everything out on my table and I had the time, I just kept playing and made another background with butterflies. I drew the butterfly and I'm not really too happy with it, but I do like how the water and the paints blended together for this one!
Thanks for visiting, hope you stop by again soon :)
