Time Out #40 and OCC - Watercolor

It's day three of the Online Watercolor Class and I'm still watching the videos from day two.  Some of the things they're teaching I have already done but you can always learn something new and hints about how to do things better.  One of the techniques was watercoloring backgrounds which is what I did for this card for Time Out. We're to CASE this card by Tracey McNeely with a twist.


Isn't that Mondo Magnolia just beautiful?  I ran with the vellum flower (substantially smaller unfortunately) and my twist is using colored vellum.


I pearl embossed the flower from Tim Holtz and leaves from SSS onto yellow and green vellum.  I had a heck of a time finding an outline leaf in any of my stamps.  After fussy cutting them, they are mounted on a background watercolored with Twisted Citron DI. The flower details don't show well in the photograph but the card is scrumptious IRL.

This next card was meant for The Card Concepts challenge and it's been done for a week and still I missed the deadline. No worries.  It's perfect for Day 1 of the Online Card Class - watercoloring with markers.


The image is from PTI and colored with my Zigs.

I'm so glad you dropped by.  Have you tried watercoloring?
