A Watercolor Thank You

Taking the Online Watercolor class has been all kinds of fun and although this wasn't a project for that class, I still broke out the paints to make it. I added a marker border and messed up on the side, so I added a little flower there. I highly recommend the $25 class as it gives you all sorts of card making ideas with watercolor in great videos with a variety of talented teachers, including Tim Holtz and Jennifer McGuire, along with one of my faves, Kathy over at The Daily Marker.

This was the card at first and then I added bits to make it more personal for my aunts. I wonder if I should've kept it simple. Do you second-guess yourself like that?

 



Sending this to my husband's (and my) aunts, who are the best little (literally small) Italian women I know and who are always generous. My son and I got birthday cards with birthday money and I spent mine on crafty stuff if you can believe it. :)

Off to watch some more watercolor videos and break out the paints again!

Entering this in a linky party at a2z Scrapbooking Blog. They have a great shop on Etsy with tons of Hero Arts products. I've ordered and had great service and a great price! 

Happy Wednesday and only 6 more days of school for the kiddo—not that I'm counting or anything.

  3. I second guess myself all the time, but I think you made a great decision adding your clouds, star and sentiment to this card! Your water colored background is just beautiful, and the silhouette of flowers are just perfect!
    So happy that you chose to play along at the a2zScrapbooking Blog Linky Party...Good luck!
