Happy World Card Making Day!

Here are some cards I made in Ken Oliver's class at Scrap-a-Latte in West Babylon, NY, last night.  It was a great class!  You really need to try his inks and stencils.  They're fabulous, and he's a great teacher!  #scrapalatte  #kenoliver

Watercolor Flowers Card

Here's the card I made for Kristina Werner's Simply Watercolor class, Day 5.  I practiced a lot before I felt comfortable enough to attempt a card, and I threw a few panels away, but that's how you learn.  I finally just held my breath and did it.  I went with it, and I let the flowers and leaves direct where I placed them.  It was a relaxing and freeing experience.  I added a few sequins after I took the photo, but I think you get the idea.

I used Jane Davenport's watercolors in  Brights and Neutrals.  (Note:  Amazon Affiliate links.)

Thanks for visiting!
