Insider - Day 1


Online Card Classes are running Insider at the moment. I'm so behind in class, but looking forward to finding time to really sit down and work on the ideas. The ideas are fantastic! My time is limited. :-(

For the first day, there were a number of watercolouring ideas shared by Jennifer McGuire. I watched the videos intently. I took my (11yo) daughter to the rumpus room to give her a lesson on watercolouring with distress inks (since the Distress Inks are actually hers). I did practice on watercolour paper, but then I was working in my art journal (on this gorgeous little fox), and decided to just make a one-layer card. This is it.
Stamps are PTI Hello Foxy. Colours are SU! Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, and Delicata Gold.

The inside looks like this:
It's simple, but pretty. My photography at night time leaves a lot to be desired.

My daughter is in love with this card, so I'm thinking I may make a version of it for her birthday next week-end. ;-)

My other watercolouring practice, with Distress Inks on watercolour paper, included this:
I will have to work on how I can incorporate these types of images into my cards.

Thanks for dropping by.
