Water Color Class

Sorry for not posting anything for awhile, it's been a crazy summer.

A few weeks ago I attended a water color class. We used SU water color crayons on each card, I think this is my favorite color media.

The card to the left, we used the new SU Zoofari stamp set, Hugs & Wishes set and Polka Dots & Paisley for the background. We stamped the image on watercolor paper with stazon and then used an aqua painter and watercolor crayons. CS is Barley Banana, Lavender Lace and Elegant Eggplant

For the card on the right, we used the Serene Sunflower set. CS is Barley Banana and Choc. Chip. With this technique we colored the stamp with watercolor crayons then spritz it with water, then stamped the image onto watercolor paper.
My favorite technique is using the aqua painter and coloring the image. I think you have more control with shading this way.
Well that's all for now, I hope to post again real soon. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
