I've been spending some time working on watercolor as a medium for my card making.  To delve into this technique, I signed up for the Online Card Class called Watercoloring for Cardmakers.  I've enjoyed it so far (not finished yet).

I purchased a wonderful set of watercolor that I love - the Kuretake Gansai Tambi set.  By the way, I purchased it from Ellen Hutson (link above) and found their service and delivery speed to be fantastic.

The first few days in the class were mainly focused on backgrounds and watercolor stamping, so many of my cards are from playing with those techniques.  Rather than go through all the details and supplies, I'm going to post images of the cards with maybe a few notes.

This is an old stamp I found in my collection.  

The balloons are colored with copics, but the background is watercolored.  Love this die from Simon Says Stamp.

Hero Arts stamp.  Image is watercolored.

Sentiment is embossed with white power and background is watercolored.

Images and sentiment are white embossed and background is watercolored.

Background is watercolored and sentiment was stamped with black ink once the watercolor was dry.

Heart is made of watercolor paper that has been watercolored with Distress markers.  It was then die cut with the Danish Hearts Simon Says Stamp die.

Background is watercolored.  Sentiment is a rub on from SSS February kit.

Heart is watercolored.  I think I blocked the background with rubber cement, but I'm not sure.  Image is a rub on from the SSS February Card kit.
