Watercolor cards made simple from Deepti at Craftsy

I really love the watercolor card class, I bought it as a splurge, and I am glad that I did, it really took my cards to the next level. all these cards are inspired from this class, I really like the techniques used, and the good advice Deepti gave as we were developing the class.
First easy card, with brush stokes and then I stamped


I made this with masking fluid, and my Japanese paint that I love


I sketched this flower from my silhouette, and then added watercolor to it.

  2. I recommend this class, do you watercolor or stamp? I thought her content was well thought up, and you could do this class even if your not a stamper, I don't love stamping and thought this class could work even if you didn't have stamps!
