Tuesday Morning Sketches #262

Good Morning!  It's time for another fun sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's also Judged Challenge week which mean there's an added twist.  The twist is Watercolor!

I've really been getting into watching watercolor videos on You Tube.  My favorite it Jennifer McGuire and I'm really enjoying the videos that the owner of W Plus 9 is doing, too.  Kristina Werner is good, too.  I bought a set a Gelatos awhile back with a 40% off coupon.  And I scored big when Blitsy had a great sale on Distress Inks - next I want the markers.  So anyway, I've been dabbling and playing and thought it would be a great twist.  I'm not good at this, but I do love it.  It's fun.

This week's sponsor is Creative Classes Online (used to be My Creative Classroom).  Maybe they'll have a watercolor class.


My card features Distress Inks colors Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peeled Paint and a touch of Milled Lavendar.  The stamps are from Sweet n Sassy Stamps (flowers) and some old greetings by Stampin' Up!.  I embossed onto vellum.  I think my card feels serene.

I do hope you'll join us this week.  See you there!

great use of your watercolors - Online Card Classes which are by Jennifer McGuire and Kristine Werner had a great watercolor classs - you can still purchase it - well worth the money which is nominal. Keep playing and enjoying

Quite the contrary - I think you're very good at this and your card proves it! I love the blended blues & greens on the image, and the background is just beautiful and reminds me of soothing waters! Beautiful!!
