First I tried the technique shown to us by Tasnim Ahmed. Her painting was SO gorgeous!! I need a lot more practice (and I think it would help if I picked an image with bigger open areas next time) but I think it is not too bad for a first attempt.
I used Papertry Ink's Year of Flowers Lily of the Valley and the sentiment is from one of the Think Big Favorites sets. I painted with distress inks.
My second card follows the example of Dawn Woleslagle (I definitely need a lot of practice here!) Can I just say she is AMAZING?? I already LOVED her stamps (WPlus9) and am being blown away by her recent watercolor cards made with those stamps (both in class and on her blog!)
I used the stamp set Flora and Fauna 1 by WPlus9. The sentiment is from WP9's Fresh Cut Florals and I painted with distress ink.
Thanks for stopping by today!
