Watercolour class day 7…..faking it!!

Today's lessons were all about faking it! We were using stamps and watercolours to create the illusion that we had actually hand painted a line picture. I decided again to use my watercolour pencils for this card, although I found it much easier to use actual watercolour paints for the water in the vase. I think that is the key - to use the different mediums in co-ordination with each other.

So here is my 'faking it' watercolour card…..hopefully it looks as though I have sat down with a blank canvas and hand painted the picture….

Quite impressed with this one even if I do say so myself!! Just completed my card for today which I;m super excited about - will photograph and post tomorrow before giving to my friend for her birthday on Friday!!

Any comments as always, so very much appreciated xxx

  1. WOW, Laura, you're achieved your goal: a painting that looks totally 'free form"! Had you not mentioned that you used stamps, I'd never have guessed.You should be impressed with this; I know I certainly am! Love it - and another A+++ for you! Hugs~c
