Mother's Day card and Watercolour Class Day 1

Here's the card I made for Mother's Day, using the vibrant backgrounds technique from the on-line class I'm taking (see sidebar).  I used Dylusions for the background in the new colours.  The flower stamp and background are from Penny Black and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up. This was a fun technique - masking with masking fluid and adding colour around the image.  I would like to try more of these with different watercolour media.  The masking fluid makes masking smaller areas much easier than trying to use masking film or paper masks.  Good times!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. These are all so beautiful, Karen! I love the soft wash look they have.

  2. Excited to see what you did with the making technique. I am going to take this class next for sure. Love what you did the white image against the pretty watercolor BG.
