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: http://theunitystampco.blogspot.com/2014/05/friends-with-flair_30.html

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.

Stamp Set: ...I will never leave you by Phyllis Harris Untiy Stamp Co.
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.
