Hi and thanks for visiting my blog. I signed up to Online Card Classes Watercolor for Cardmakers last weekend as part of their flash sale and this is the first card I made from Day 1.
This is sort of a combination of the techniques I learned in OCC and the Bokeh Made Easy technique that Dawn Woleslagle posted on her blog. I don't think I quite got the bokeh right, but I'll work on it!
I white embossed a grid stamp onto watercolor paper then colored with watercolor paints, trying to match the colors from this week's Color Throwdown challenge. Once I was happy with the colors and the panel was dry, I sponged white ink using circle masks to try and get a bokeh effect. Once it was dry, I adhered it to my card base using dimensionals.
I cut the thank you from a new Spellbinders die and added some enamel dots in greens and blues to finish off the card.
I'm also entering this into Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty Challenge - CassieT's challenge as well as AAA Cards watercolor challenge.
Quite a few of my Freshly Made Sketch DT pals also signed up for the Watercolor class and I can't wait to see what they produce - hint, hint girls :)
