I’m back sharing my cards from Kristina Werner’s Simply Watercolor Christmas class that started on Monday at Online Card Classes. I had actually started her Simply Watercolor class during vacation just as something a little different to do. These two classes offer easy watercolored cards with minimal supplies. Of course if you know me, I am always switching things up, so I am doing the basic designs but have been adding in stamping & layers to my cards.
I have completed the first day’s regular lessons but tonight I am sharing the first 2 that were made into cards. I hope to do the bonus tomorrow & will get the third design made into a card.
The red stripes are regular watercolor on watercolor with a gold metallic ribbon & stamped sentiment.
The blue dots are metallic dots on regular watercolor with a silver metallic ribbon. For the stamped sentiment I added a watercolor swish to tie it in better. Also I decided my blue present would be a square instead of a rectangle.
It’s actually pretty fun creating with minimal guidelines. It’s also freeing to not worry if the lines aren’t perfectly straight or even.
Taking classes stretches your creativity & can help tempt your muse if you’re not feeling particularly creative. Online classes are pretty easy to navigate and are available for a variety of budgets including free. Find a class or a tutorial and try something new this week.
