Watercolor Pencil class...

Today, I wanted to share the projects we made in our Watercolor Pencil Class last month.  Each participant received a pack of the new Watercolor Pencils and a pack of Watercolor Paper.  We played with lots of techniques, then complete 3 projects.  They also went home with lots of their technique samples to make into more cards.

As you can tell, everyone is busy water coloring!  

This project was made using Watercolor Paper.  We drew swatches of color then painted over them.  After drying we die-cut the "sweet" from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies, then added two more layers of thick card stock underneath the words to give them a raised look.  The "Hello" is from the Sunshine Sayings stamp set.  

The flower was heat embossed with White Embossing Powder and colored with the pencils, then water added to blend the colors.  This card was made using the Rose Wonder stamp set.  

For this card, we stamped the image on Vellum Card Stock with StazOn ink, then colored the back of the image.  We then used a little water to blend the colors, allowed to dry and adhered to Whisper White card stock to help it pop.  We used the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  

This was an optional card that I decided not to do at the class, but thought I'd share it here.  To make the spatter background, I used a very wet paint brush or Aqua Painter, then flicked the end of the Watercolor Pencil causing color to spray off the end.  I used a few different colors for this fun background.  The "celebrate" came from the Happy Celebrations stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.
