Online Card Classes, Watercolor for Card Makers

Online Card Classes are a great way to learn different skills and techniques. Currently I am enrolled in a class called Watercolor for Card Makers. It is interesting that watercolor can go from rather structured and regimented, which is what I think mine look like, all the way to very abstract and swirly. These are the best of some of my practice pieces and I hope that with a lot more practice I will get better and better. I don’t want to make them abstract and swirly but I’d like to be able to make them a little less crisp. I didn’t do the drawings, though. They are actually rubber stamps stamped on watercolor paper; I only wish I were talented enough to do the drawings. For now I am concentrating on making them look more defined simply by layering the colors, and once I get better I will make the images into cards. Have a great week!
