OH. MY. STARS….the new Online Card Class is fantastic!! Hands-down this is my new favorite class in the Online Card Classes series! It is taught by the amazing Dawn Woleslagle of WPlus9 and I cannot recommend it enough! I don’t want to give too much away but here are my creations for the first day of class!
I made three cards and one print…two of the cards used wet on wet techniques and focused on blending:
I apologize for the not great “in-progress” photos…I was using my iPhone and the light wasn’t great. Here are the final versions:
I used a sentiment from My Favorite Things and sequins from The Ton Stamps to finish my popsicle card.
I also created a shaker card using a sentiment from My Favorite Things and gilding from The Ton Stamps. I think that one is my favorite…I LOVE winter and snow but those bright cheery citrus slices just make me happy!
My third card utilizes water to create an ombre effect! I only used three paints for this card but was able to get many different shades for each color! I used a die from Memory Box and a sentiment from Altenew to finish this card!
Finally I created a print by experimenting with brush strokes and various brush sizes. I used the same three colors as the card above but also added gold gouache for a little extra sparkle!
I’m in love with that gold gouache…it’s SO sparkly!! Look at all that shimmer!
So there you have it…day one of Online Card Classes! 😉 I’m looking forward to one more snow day and another opportunity to play with my watercolors!! Thanks so much for visiting and have a fabulous day!
