Online Card Class Day 1

I am taking the Online Card Class Watercolor exploring Mediums.  I decided to do a card following Jennifer McGuire’s example of using embossing before watercolouring.  I actually made two cards with this method and they both turned out well.  On the first one I used liquid masking to do the blue aura around the card but on the second one I just freehanded the blue aura and it turned out fine, as well.



My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

My Favorite Things has a new sketch Challenge this week.  Sketch is very simple………….just a mosaic circle on a plain card base.  Good thing that there were Design team samples that indicated that the sketch could be loosely interpreted.  What I noticed right away in the sketch was the mosaic pieces so I decided that would be my main focus.  I had just received a new stamp set from My Favorite Things with several related but distinctive sentiments included.  Perfect for a mosaic  says I………………………………..
