Watercolor for Card Makers

I have mentioned before that I am a huge fan of Online Card Classes presented by Jennifer McGuire, Kristina Werner, and friends.  You only have to check out all of the participation badges that I display on my blog to see how much I have enjoyed taking part in these classes.  They are great fun, an amazing source of information regarding card making techniques, and provide an infinite supply of inspiration.

Their latest online course has been Watercolor for Card Makers and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching all of the wonderful videos and soaking up all of the inspiration.  I just wish I had been able to have a bit more time to play and make cards using the skills that have been presented.  I find that I often end up with a dozen or more unfinished cards while taking part in the classes, and don't get around to finishing them up until the course has concluded.  Well, here is one of the cards that I did manage to get finished.

 I made this card following the Day 9 class on Freehand watercolour techniques.  I have never attempted watercolour painting prior to this course and I have to say I enjoyed it immensely.  I really want to further explore and play with this medium.  It is so much fun and I had a real sense of accomplishment when I finished this card.  I used Peerless Water Colors on Tim Holtz watercolour paper to create this card.  I am so thankful to Jennifer McGuire for introducing this form of watercolour supplies - just love them!  The paints blend beautifully and have gorgeous vibrant colours.

Until next time,
