Online Card Watercolor Class Day 2

Here we are on day two of the Watercolor Card Class.  While I am behind the exercises for the class at least I am giving what I can a try.  Day two had us making free hand flowers.  This is one of them.  I like the brightness and color of these flowers.  I am thinking of going back and extending the length of the stems and and maybe adding a tiny leaf.  I just don't think I like the short stems.

I mounted the watercolor behind embossed blue card stock and added a die cute butterfly in a shimmer vellum.  I also used the same vellum for the greeting.  I do like how the card turned out over all.

January 29 - update

I really thought the flowers would look more like a flower if they had a tiny leaf so I went back and added that.  I like it better now.

I have much to learn when it comes to water coloring, especially more 
so for a type A  person who is particular having things perfect.  
Perfect and water coloring cannot coexist.  I plan to keep trying/playing.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a blessed day


  1. Beautiful card, you're lucky to be taking this class, I hope to do so myself at some point!

  2. I like your short stems. They look like the flowers my grandson proudly brings me! LOL, I have to float them! Aren't they fun to make? Love how you've put them on your card with the butterfly!
