online watercolor card class

This is something I have never done before. I have been enjoying playing around with watercolor for a couple of months and love the medium. I stumbled across a very affordable online class over at www.onlinecardclasses.com  last Monday and immediately signed up. I normally just watch free videos on youtube, but gladly paid for this class.  The fact that some of my favorite artists would be sharing their expertise was a definite plus. The pictures below are from a class assignment taught by someone I have been admiring for a long time. Her blog is http://sanketij.blogspot.com/ and she is a master at using watercolor and rubber stamps to create a very artistic look. So glad I signed up.

Beautiful card, you did a great job on this lesson! I'm going to attemp to today. Love these tulips, who makes them?

Nancy...Thanks so much. That stamp is from Oxford Impressions, but I don't know if it is available any more. I do not have many flower stamps that I thought that technique would work with, so that is what I ended up using. Good luck on your lesson!

Beautiful card. You did really nail the technique. Wish my pathetic attempt was half as good!

Kim Jolley said...

Thanks Karen. However, I found your work on Flickr and it is beautiful.

Wow!
This is so beautiful!
I haven't dared to try this technique yet... And probably never will. :)

Thanks so much. It's only paper Erika! If you don't like it, throw it out. I have a very "full" trash can next to my work space.
