I love making handmade cards. I always love stamping technique. Also, I like watercoloring the images using watercolor pencils because I can just color them like regular pencil colors, wet it with some water, and done. But I still do not have enough confidence to do more with watercolor paints.
My daughters are my inspirations to step out of my comfort zone about painting. I love seeing them just paint whatever on their papers and pouring out their imaginations on the paper. They just do it. And as always I LOVE their arts!
Today I found out that makingn cards with watercoloring with watercolor paint directly on watercolor paper is fun. This is because I am taking classes at Big Picture Classes, one of them is where I learned to make these cards. The class is actually about making gifts for Mother’s Day but I think it is more than just a gift for Moms. They are great gifts for anyone 🙂 What I like with all the classes at BPC is that the teachers will walk you step by step with video and also they are very helpful.
At this class, the teacher showed how to paint the cards and adding some extra on them with stamping and letterpressing technique.
Supplies I used to make these cards are:
- Happy Everything stamp set (CTMH)
- Feathers stamp set (CTMH)
- Finding the Words (CTMH)
- Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad (CTMH)
- My Acrylix Stamping blocks (CTMH)
- Heavy weight Watercolor paper (Handmade Modern, Target) or you also can use watercolor cards
- Pearlescent Watercolor
- Big and Wide Flat brushes
What I learn this week is that fear won’t get you and me anywhere, but willing to try and taking the first step forward will get us somewhere.
Did you try something new today? Share with me in the comment box, I’d love to know!
Have an amazing weekend!
