Here is another watercolor card I made in the online watercolor card class. As you can see, I did enjoy this class. In this class you used a design to paint your image. I cut this flower shape with my Silhouette. I then laid the design over my watercolor paper - taped it down - and painted inside the cut out shapes. After you have the initial shape painted you can remove your cut design. I think I colored it with gelatos and some watercolor pencils layering color upon color. After I liked the design, I then added some color around the design. I colored a strip of watercolor paper and also another piece where I stamped my sentiment. The sentiment was from Unity Stamps.
I added the dots but I didn't really like them but they were stuck so there was no turning back. In retrospect I think I would have liked to have done some splatters. I matted the image in dark grey (my new black) - I wanted something dark on the card to pick up the black ink in the sentiment.
I still have more backgrounds made so there will be more cards coming soon.
