Whatever Wednesday & Online Watercolor Class Day Two!

GOOD MORNING my sweet creative friends & welcome to another "Whatever Wednesday"! On this day, my team & I get to make "whatever" we want! ;) So today, I'd thought I would incorporate what I learned for the 2nd day of the Online Watercolor Class I am taking!  I am SO ENJOYING it!!
For today, the class was taught by Miss Agnieszka! Her instructional video was to use watercolor pencils! I was ECSTATIC because I have been hoarding my Stampin Up watercolor pencils for 12 years now!!! LOL….. I KNEW there was a reason why I kept them! hehehe! ;)
I LOVE how they came out! You can see the entire process of me making this in my video below! I thought it would be cute to just add a simple flower to the center of the card! I used my "Stitched Daisy Die" along w/the little cute tag from my "Chunky Jar Accessories"! 

Okay, for my next card, I wanted to give this technique a try that Miss Jennifer McGuire did in her instructional video! Basically, I masked off the edges of my card using some post it tape! Then I stamped the rose from "Bloom where you are planted" directly onto the white card stock using black ink. Next I used a new product that I just picked up from Michaels called "Fineline Masquepen".  This is a liquid that you coat your entire image & it serves as a mask. When this stuff dries, it dries clear & that is when you are safe to start your watercoloring! For this technique, I used my "Grumbacher Deluxe Transparent Watercolors".  I really liked this watercolor set as well.  So all I did was used my paintbrush & started brushing on my watercolors until I got it to be the exact consistency that I wanted! Then I just ran my heat gun over it QUICKLY because I wasn't sure how it was going to affect the mask that I had over my flower. After it dried, I stamped my sentiment using "Treasured Moments" stamp set, then I proceed to carefully remove the mask! It was actually pretty EASY to just remove it w/my fingers! EASY PEASY……Here is the end result!  Your image is bright white & stayed intact. Last I removed the post it tape & as you can see, my edges stayed pretty sweet. :) Then I layered this piece to a yellow card stock then added it to a black base! I was actually really have w/how this came out! OH, I added some orange enamel dots that I had in my stash! ;)

Here is my video showing how I used my watercolor pencils for my first card!
