Card in Watercolor

I took the Online Card Class, Watercolor and finally got around to actually playing with watercolor paints.
I leaned so much from the class and it all looked so easy though painting in watercolor paints still intimidates me some.  I cannot seem to let go and use more water and paint. I guess it will take practice.  I am use to coloring with Copic Markers which is so controlled plus I am one who likes things very tidy within the lines when coloring in a stamp but I have loved the look of watercolor paintings for a very long time and have several hanging on my walls.  Thus my inner voice must be telling me to let go of the control I tend to want to have and be more free and spontaneous with my arts work.  And I have to admit when I do something completely out of the box for me I love the process of doing it.

I am posting this card over at Unity Stamp Blog "Friends with Flair" which goes on every Friday.  You can view the blog here:

The painting is mounted on a dark blue card stock, which does look much better then it does in the scan as the blue is lost with the black card stock behind it.

Watercolor paints, hair was done using a Distress Marker.

Using watercolor paints with my stamps and card making is diffidently something I plan on doing more of.  

Walk hand in hand with the Lord Jesus and He will never leave you as is His promise.
