Online Card Class: Watercolor for Card Makers

Right now I am taking Online Card Class' Watercolor for Card Makers class.  And I. Am. In. Love.  Why, oh WHY couldn't real school have been this fun and rewarding?!  I am totally and completely digging every single thing about this class.  Contrary to what you might see on this blog, I am not an artist.  I couldn't draw my way out of a paper bag.  But I always wanted to be an artist.  This class makes me feel like I am one.  Sigh.  I am happy.  :)

Here is a card I made using a technique from the first day of class.  It is a stencil masking technique.    

It didn't turn out as awesome as Jennifer Raza's card, but I still love the effect. Here is a close up of the detail. 

So cool!  This second card uses an emboss resist technique.  It's supposed to use a background stamp, but I figured I would give it a try on one of my Mother's Day cards, using some doily stamps I have.  They were stamped with Versamark and then set with clear embossing powder.  Then I did a watercolor wash over it all.  Once it was dry, I used some paper and my iron to get the embossing off of the card, to make it more flat.  I think it turned out really pretty.

That is all for today!  I will be back tomorrow with more cards that I've created from this wonderful class!  Until then...
