Watercolor for Card Makers Online Card Classes

Happy Friday! I know it's been a while, but I'm back with a couple of cards I made while practicing some cool watercolor techniques in the latest online card class, Watercolor for Card Makers. I really do enjoy these classes. This is the sixth one I've taken! I highly recommend them, as even the most seasoned card makers will take a lot from these classes.  I was especially excited for this one because watercoloring is so hot right now and this is the technique I struggle with the most. It's the control factor I have a hard time with and I'm doing my best to "let it go". I will let you know how that goes. Anyway, on to the cards. 

I was inspired by the fabulous Laura Bassen. Her card in class is just stunning. Oh, I do love my Distress Inks!  For the second card, I had a piece of a "practice" run that I did not want to waste. I just stuck it behind the negative of my die cut, added a strip of glitter cardstock, and done. I started to add a Dymo label sentiment, but I thought it took away from the watercolor piece, so I decided to just leave it alone. 

I will be back with more cards and will add my supply links later today. I am trying to get my inlinkz back up to date after being gone so long. Have a wonderful and creative day!
