Watercolor Love

I am in love with watercolor on cards.  That is one of the reasons I'm taking the Online Card Class called Watercolor for Card Makers, which started yesterday.  :)  I can't wait to learn more techniques about watercoloring. 

I made a couple cards over the weekend that I wanted to share today. 


I made the watercolor rainbow by blending pink, yellow and blue together in a strip.  I actually did this twice, once here and once on a scrap piece of watercolor paper, because I wanted to die cut hears out of similar-patterned paper.  Once I adhered the hearts, I cover them with my clear Wink of Stella pen to add some subtle shimmer.  I love how it turned out.


Speaking of loving how a card turned out...this is one of my favorites to date.  I made the watercolor strip before anything else was decided about the card.  Once I went through my stamps, I just knew that this cactus stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop would be the perfect accent for the card.  I'm just in love with this card! 

That's all for today!  Hopefully I will have more to share soon!  Until then...
