My Samples for Week 1 Watercolor for Card Makers Class

I have been having a lot of fun with the Online Card Class (OLCC) Watercolors for Card Makers.  Week 1 is over and I have made several samples to share.  These are just samples to let me try out the techniques, many for the first time.  Although I have taken many OLCCs classes this class has taught me something new with every video.  I only share the finished sample and supplies.  Unless otherwise stated all stamps and stencils are from Club Scrap.

Day 1 and 2 Watercolor Backgrounds

Day 1 Technique 1

Day 5 and 6 Water-coloring Stamped Images

Day 5 Technique 2

Day 6 Technique 3
Above water coloring an embossed image using 100# vellum Bristol paper, embossing powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang in Merci Beaucamp Mint, and Koi Watercolors.

If these spark your interest I urge you to think about joining for the class.  You can go at your own pace and you get lifetime access to videos and materials.  Each day has three technique videos including a card made for each.  Later this week I'll post a tag made using one of these techniques.

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are appreciated.
