Watercolor Homework Day 5 and 6


Homework for Day 5 of Online Card Classes Watercolor Class is coloring an embossed image. 
I finally got to use some Distress markers and I love how they react to water 
and make coloring a breeze.


The sentiment was die cut from gold foil card stock and attached to a vellum band.
A few gold sequins finished off the card.


Day 6 was coloring stamped images and I made a Mother's Day card with the chicks
from Technique Tuesday. I colored each of the chicks with a swish of color and
wasn't concerned about staying within the lines. Although you can't see it well in the photo,
I added some shine to each of the birds with a Wink of Stella pen.


Remember you can sign up here for the class and have lifetime access 
to all the lessons. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm so looking forward to homework!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  27. Donna - I've been looking for a double wedding ring stamp - found only a "klunky" one so far. Can you tell me whose stamp you used? I have just started playing with watercolor - and oh my, you inspire me! Mahalo for all you share! melanie

    1. Hi Melanie! I used Penny Black's "Allover Pattern" cling stamp. Hero Arts has a similar woodblock stamp called "Looped Circle". Either one will work with the watercolor technique.
