Watercolour class day 4 - more learning!!

Evening all,

I thought I would really quickly stop by with another card which I made today following the techniques shown on our Watercolour for Card makers class. There were three techniques today, but actually, I found I was really only able to do one of them because of the gaps in my supplies - I don't have any background stamps and although I have tried the third technique - I am kind of battling with what I have done in order to assemble the card!! I just can't quite get it right at all.

Anyway, here is my card for today, photographed in a slightly different location as I was short of time once again!! This is the first time in a very long time I have not added any embellishments of any kind to a card. I just really get that the image itself and the sentiment spoke volumes and nothing else was required - you may think differently mind due!!

Here's my card.

As you can see, there is a watercolour look created again!! I stamped the main dandelion image and then with the set I was using (Personal Impressions one), there were Dandelion stalks - I just inked the end of the stalks, sprayed them with water and stamped at the side of the main flower to give the look of the petals blowing in the wind.

This is a super simple card, but I am actually very pleased with it. Very different to my usual bling tactic cards, but it's good to try new things!

Any comments as always, really make my day Laura xxx


  1. Laura, your water-colouring is outstanding in conveying the 'wispy' delicacy of the dandelion! Pretty, rather dreamy, and eye-catching; no need to add more, because it's perfect as it is! Another A+++ Hugs~c
