Watercolor Creations

This week my kitchen counter has been covered in watercolor supplies and paper. I saw so many wonderful cards done by students in the Watercolor for CardMakers classes that I decided to sign up myself.

Here are my creations from classes 1-6 (I combined them into 3 cards). I had lots of attempts - but these are the only ones I am willing to share - LOL! I love, love, love the classes and encourage you to take them if you get a chance.

Class 1&2 - Watercolor backgrounds:

I used watercolor paints and a Prima stencil on this one. I learned that a smaller brush is not a good idea when doing color washes.

Class 3&4 - Watercolor Stamping

I learned not to keep stamping when everything is wet but I still like how it came out.

Class 5&6 - Watercoloring Stamped Images

I used SU! Fabulous Florets images and Tim Holtz Distress Inks - I really like how this came out. I watercolored my rolled roses too.

Fun stuff - hope you are having a fab weekend!



  1. Oh, you're learning so much in your water color class and doing some wonderful pieces. They're all very pretty, Nancy.

  4. My goodness Nancy. You have stepped up to the plate and smash one to the wall. Great work on all three.

  5. You did a great job on all of these and I'll bet your others are just as lovely. I am thinking of signing up for that class also. I love that you can sign up at any time. I have also seen some wonderful card come out of that class and yours' are no exception. Enjoy your day.

  7. These are wonderful! You go girl. Love the blooming bush out the window and the gorgeous flowers on the last one.

  8. Oh Wow! A+ on all your cards...You sure were inspired by those classes.

  9. These are beautiful, I love them all but the little scene through the window has to be my favourite. I have joined a couple of these online classes, they are brilliant - I especially enjoyed the CAS ones.

  10. Beautiful watercoloring on both cards! I love those silhouette floral images against that pretty background on the 1st, and the scene you created on the 2nd is just wonderful! NJ!
