Watercolor for card makers - Day 11

Hello friends,

I've been missing in class for a couple of days - whoops!!!  Funny that the two days that I missed were the most difficult!

Luckily I'm back on track today - we were shown a great video about water coloring onto vellum.  I loved using vellum some years ago and couldn't wait for the video to finish so that I could dash off and find some!

I ended up cutting and messing about with my finished artwork so much that I nearly didn't make a card of it, but I am pleased I came up with a card design that the water coloured vellum worked out okay on!

You can probably see how tight my piece of vellum got, but I don't mind.  If I make another one, I'd be a bit more's all about planning....and I hadn't planned on how I was actually going to use my piece!

Normally I'd say cards look much nicer in real life, but on this occasion, I'm sure the photo of it looks best!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.
