Playing with Watercolour

Like many of the crafters I know, I'm taking part in the current Watercolour classes at Online Card Classes.   It's not a strong medium for me - I find the free form nature of it too loose - I like control!  However I have had a bit of a go.......

Firstly I used a quick and easy technique to enter this weeks's LIM challenge - I've not played in a while due to being busy with the store but I really miss it so will try harder to participate.

The challenge this week was a one-layer thank you.  I used PTI stamps and distress inks and softened the stamping for a faux watercolour look.   Not earth shattering, but not bad for a first attempt.

For my second attempt I used my newly arrived Clearly Besotted blossom stamps and the same technique with a little splattering over top to suggest the blossom drifting off in the wind.

I thought I'd enter this into the current watercolour challenge at KIS  http://kis-challenge.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/keep-it-simple-39-watercolor.html


  1. Both cards are brilliant, but the first one is spectacular! So many people doing this online watercolour class & producing stunning results, must go check it out.

  2. Awesome cards for class, Tara! And funnily, we entered both into the same challenge :) Good luck with your two entries!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous! I love the cherry blossom, but it's the first card that I think is stunning! Great work.

    PS Must do this watercolour class.

  4. Beautiful cards .... I really love the delicate look to the cherry blossom one .... gorgeous! xx

  5. Wow!!! I can't pick between these 2 stunning one layer cards. They are simply perfect. I can't wait to play with my new CBS products but being very well behaved and doing the chores first!
    Thanks for taking part
