Water Colour for Card Makers - On-line Class

Hello Friends,

I'm so happy, I've signed up for this class which starts on 5th May. They opened up the classroom yesterday giving us lots of details and information, so that we are ready to go on the day!  I love that, I like a little prep time ;)!

To get us all started they suggested we go and check out our water colour supplies.  I searched and searched for a set of Hero Arts Water colours that I, like Jennifer McGuire bought about 10 years ago.  Could I find them?  No, I couldn't, but I did find all my old water colour stamps from Art Impressions.  I thought as I found them, what cards would I make with them, if I used them now, with the other supplies I own?

Well, without further ado, I set about and made this card......

I combined my old Art Impression stamps with my new Stampin' Up stash!  I used Stampin' Up markers, mostly the current In-Color set, along with Stampin' Up water colour paper, Naturals Ivory and Crisp Cantaloupe card stock.  The shape is cut from the Stampin' Up Framelits - LabelsCollection (125598) and I couldn't resist using the matching Stampin' Up Paper-Piercing template to prick all those little holes.

Of course, as usual, using my Crafty Envelope Punch Board Calculator, I made a perfect envelope, which I pricked and stamped on too!

Here is a picture of the card and envelope together.

I hope you consider joining the class, I can thoroughly recommend all the On-line Card Classes, I just love 'em!

Have a great day and please leave me a comment if you like what you see.

Thanks for popping by.
