I've thoroughly enjoyed the Online Card Class - Watercolor Exploring Mediums. I've made a couple of cards from techniques shown in this class...and without further ado...here we go!
I have to say I LOVE how this card came out. Jennifer Rzasa
This card came out SO much better than I thought it would! I will admit that I painted it twice. The original is on the back of this finished panel. I didn't like the feet and legs of the first bird. Don't know if I could ever duplicate this card again...but I sure was happy with the end results. The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter. The flamingo was painted with Inktense watercolor pencils as was the "ground" at his feet. I also used the pencils to flick splatters on the background. I cut the painted panel down a bit and added a matching pink mat behind it then adhered it to a white card base.
I struggled with this one a little bit. I stamped my flowers in Versamark and heat embossed them in white. The flowers are the poppies from SU. I ended up with half flowers on the left hand side and it didn't really look right, so I trimmed that side off a bit, cutting around some of the blooms and letting them hang off the edge. The sentiment could have been stamped a little better...but I decided to leave it as it since I went to so much trouble to paint the flowers! I needed something to make the front panel wide enough since I trimmed so much of it off, so I stamped some white card stock with a linen background stamp, trimmed it to fit the length of the panel and then added a small strip of black between the water colored piece and the linen background. I think it's kind of growing on me now and I like it much better.
This was a great class, as are all of the Online Card Classes. If you haven't taken any of these classes, you really should give them a try. I learn something new in every class!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit! Hope you'll come back soon! Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...
