This card was created by stamping the angle in Stazon onto watercolor paper. For the background I used the wet to wet technique with watercolor paints and table salt. I love how it turned out. I added dazzling diamonds to the wings and rhinestones on her dress.
Here is a card I created using the technique called, "Bendi Frame Card." I loved how it turned out. The stamp set I used is SU Season of Peace. I created the snow using white liquid applique and some dazzling diamonds. The colors I used for the trees are SU Old Olive, Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke. I embossed the saying with silver embossing powder. The snowflakes were punched from vellum.

I have enjoyed teaching myself how to watercolor. This is the first time, I tried my hand at "waves." I used several stamps to create the scene: sea grass and a adirondock chair. I stamped the images with Stazon ink onto watercolor paper and then used watercolor paint. The adirondack chair was applied with foam tape.

This card was created using the emboss resist technique with watercolors. I had this large background stamp for a long time so I thought it would make a cool background for a male card.

Here is my first watercolor card. I started teaching myself how to watercolor after watching some YouTube videos. What do you think? Do you have any YouTube channels or websites you recommend I check out while learning?
