Holiday Card Workshop 2014

Online Card Classes has amazing online card workshops!  I'm participating in their 2014 Holiday Card Workshop & am learning TONS of fun new techniques and getting so much inspo from the amazing instructors! Day 3 has us working with watercolors- something i haven't worked with very much. Jennifer Rzasa taught us how to free hand a lovely tree using watercolors, then embellish it and turn it into a very special holiday card. This was my first attempt, and although my tree & banner are a little wonky- I really like how it turned out! I snapped the photo with my phone while it was still on my desk- sorry I know it's not the greatest picture but still wanted to share! I'm so enjoying this workshop- it's great for getting the mojo back and completing some holiday cards a little bit ahead of schedule!! Hope to be back soon with more!

supplies used:

stamps: Holiday Hellos by Simon Says Stamp (sentiment)
ink: MFT hybrid ink (black licorice)
paper: MFT carstock (wild cherry, sour apple), 140lb watercolor paper (Strathmore)
other watercolors-pan box set (winsor & newton), Spellbinders die, MFT circle stax dienamics (to make banner), glue pen, TCP's glitzy glitter (no longer available), 4mm red pearls, tombo mono-multi glue.
