Watercolor For Cardmakers

Nothing like overloading myself with classes this week.  On top of the Layout a Day class I signed up for the Watercolor for Cardmakers class.  This card is a combination of two techniques from day 1 and day 2.  I used the Vibrant Watercolor Wash from Day 1 along with Jennifer McGuire Watercolor background technique using masking from day 2.  I was running low on artist's tape so I tried to use painter's tape.  I ripped my watercolor paper on one corner.  That's the last time I'll use painter's tape.  Off to buy some more artist's tape.

Simply Sketchy stamp set from Stampin'Up!  Stazon Black Ink.  Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Tim Holtz Distressed ink background.  Artist's Masking Fluid.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Stunning! I did not sign up for this class, as I have so much else to do right now - I'm just going to learn from you ;)

  2. Gorgeous splashes of color Donna with the fun image and ribbon.

  3. Hi Donna
    Wow, what a gorgeous pop of colour. Dull day here so its certainly brightened it up.
    Love it!
    Have a great day.

  4. Donna, this is lovely! These colors are just so joyful.

  5. I really like this, Donna! What a great idea to add color to the background and leave the image uncolored. It's a fun and decorative twist!

  6. Beautiful card Donna. I'm having so much fun looking at everyone's cards.

  7. Way to combine the techniques!

    I've been using painter's tape all week with no problems. Maybe pull it off slower? It's certainly a lot less $ than artist's tape.

  8. Oh my goodness, this is stunning! This is one technique I haven't got to yet, but this fab creation has really inspired me to try!


Thank you so much for your comments. I read and enjoy all of them.
