OCC Day 1 & 2 Watercolour for Card makers

Hello everyone!

I'm back on Day 1 & 2 of class and here are my cards so far.

Day 1:

I took inspiration from Kristina's card.  I did try all three techniques but only one turned out.

I only have one background stamp so I took a border stamp from one of the CKOM  and clear embossed it into a pattern.  I heat embossed the sentiment in Hero Arts white embossing powder on vellum and then used some enamel dots that I had made out of those peeler beads (yes I stole them from my kids)  We actually had fun doing it.  I use the Reeves watercolours and it's a set of 18 colours.  I got them at Michaels but I can't find them on their site so I couldn't link to them. (Sorry!) s

Day 2:

Here is my card for day 2.  I took inspiration from Agnieszka Malyszek and her technique was to scrible the paper with watercolour pencils and then wet them with a brush.  I popped it up on black Recollections card stock and die cut a tag from Lawn Fawn's "Tag You're It" die set out of vellum.  I used white thread and clear sequins for the embellishments.  The sentiment is from the May 2013 SSS CKOM Mother's day (I think) and cut it out with my scissors.  I then popped that up onto the vellum and the used Liquid Glass (CTMH) to adhere it to the card.

Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow for another day of fun card making and new techniques.
