Clean and Simple Cards – Day One

November 13th, 2015 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Online Card Class 1 Comment »

So excited to be enrolled in another Online Card Class.  I learn so much and it really pushes my crafting ability.

The classes for day one is able clean and simple cards.

 

The very first card was from Julie Ebersole.  She always does such classic looks in such simple techniques.

 

CAS Card Julie Ebersole

I took her inspiration of creating a frames scene with beautiful trees and snow.

I decided I did not want to make the lines around the picture so I ended up ink blending the edges with a blue sky.   I did not have a glue pad so I ended up using modeling paste and sprinkled glitter on it.

I really like how this card came out.

Thank you looking!!!!

Day Three – Watercolor for Card Makers

September 29th, 2015 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Online Card Class No Comments »

 

Day three was pencils and crayons.   Heck I ran out of time.  I did not even finish the videos.  But then again, I never do.

 

Watercolor oil pastels

I had bought those Prima Oil Pastels that are for watercoloring.  I love the intense color.  I tried using it on a backgound stamp.  I failed.   LOL.  But I do like this simple card.  Very Bright.

 

Thanks for looking

 

 

Day Two – Water Color for Card Makers

September 29th, 2015 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Online Card Class 1 Comment »

 

This day was about traditional watercolors.

I used my peerless water colors and my Kuretake

 

On this card I used Peerless to get a dreamy background

 

Watercolro background

I ended up doing the Gnome twice.  The first time the colors ran so bad.  I then switched to distress inks.  I had more control and it looks way better.

 

Watercolor outlining

 

OH MY GOODNESS!  I loved this one.   This is the lineless watercolor technique.  I dont know if it was because I did a good job or those mice are so stinkin cute!!!   I dyed the ribbon to match the color of the paper.  So so so so CUTE!!!

 

watercolor city

 

I tried to do a die cut emboss into the water color paper and it still cut some parts of the paper.  It just was not happening for me.   Oh well.

 

Thanks

Day One – Watercolor for Card Makers

September 29th, 2015 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Online Card Class 1 Comment »

Howdy,  Nothing like panicking at the last minute trying to get cards done.  I am sooo bad at finishing early.

Day one is all about watercolor markers!   And boy do I have them.  I have distress markers, I have Zig Real Color Markers.  I even purchased the new ones that Kristina used in her circle card.  They did not come in the mail yet.  Probably tomorrow.  Oh well!

WAtercolor Cherries

The first card is using a cherry stamp set from Flourishes.

I really liked how it came out.  Struggled a bit to make the cherries show different colors.

I used the Zig Real Color markers on this card

 

Watercolor smear flowers

This card technique was using the color right onto the stamp.   I also used the zig real color markers for this one.  I also make the ribbon.  I tried to used zig real color but it was not happening.  So I ended up using distress ink to make the ribbon.  I also added that silver sentiment holder.  This was an attempt to use up old supplies from my closet.

Watercolor Circles

 

This card is a FAILURE.   LOL, we all have them.  I tried to use the zig markers in a way to so gradual color change.  I fail.  The colors smeared.  I even hate the ribbon.  Oh well.

 

Thanks for looking!

Ok, off and running with a new watercolor class.   To prep for this class, I did a card using those Cosmo Cricket Watercolor cards.  They prints some wonderful thing on the watercolor paper and then you go ahead and color it!

Watercolor Before class

 

I used a set of metallic watercolors that I refused to throw away.   I like them.  It was gold, copper, pink and shimmering rose gold.   Loved it.

Thanks for looking!
