Day 4 Watercolours for cardmakers


Day 4

And I am still loving this class! It’s a little hard to find the time to play with the techniques during the week but thanks to unlimited access to the videos and pdf instructions, I know I will be able to go back to any lesson I want, whenever I want, even after the class is over! Sweeet!

So, I only had time to try one technique tonight so I chose Shari Carroll’s gelato on a solid stamp. I used a beautiful floral stem from CTMH’s Treasure Life set. Gotta be honest, it will take some practice and I don’t think this particular stamp was the best choice. I don’t know if it was because it was a clear acrylic stamp, or because it was finer than Shari’s but I did not get as good a result. In fact, I had to touch up the image with my Distress markers because the gelatos did not transfer in some places.  Maybe not enough water? I will keep trying!

you are loved

Above are the two cards I made: first impression on the left and the second generation stamping on the right.  I will take these cards into work tomorrow as I am selling them for Mother’s Day, with the proceeds going to my Relay For Life team. Love crafting for a cause!

Tomorrow is Friday!!!! 😀 I intend to put some serious time behind my craft desk so hopefully I will have some more cards to post tomorrow!

Take care, my friends!
