Now I've done a few online classes, some excellent, some good and some not so good. This one falls into the excellent category - which I suppose I should have guessed as Jennifer McGuire is involved and she's a real class act. And the price is brilliant too - $25.
I didn't make the live run of this class, but I think I actually prefer to work at my own pace and absorb things slowly - I find I hate to get behind in live classes and rush through the experimenting stage trying to keep up.
All this preamble leads me into sharing a card I made for Less is More's current challenge to use watercolours. And it's a card that turned out so much more than I hoped and I'm totally in love with it! Don't you just love it when things turn out better than you expected?
Our challenge is to use
First I prepared the background by applying ink to an acrylic block, spritzing it with water and stamping onto watercolour card. Once it had dried out I stamped the butterfly and then did a second generation stamping set slightly off the first to get a bit of a blurred image. I then just finished it off by stamping the sentiment. Hope you like it as much as I do!
Stamps: Uniko Studio, English Country Garden Butterflies, All Occasion Sentiments #1
Inks: SU, daffodil delight, rich razzleberry, tempting turquoise; Memento, tuxedo black
