Watercolor Backgrounds

Hi there!
I am participating in the online card class, Watercolor for Card Makers.  So far, I am LOVING it!  It really is stretching my creative boundaries.  I am still struggling a bit with the lack of control in watercoloring techniques, but the end result is usually beautiful!

I am a little behind with the class, so this card demonstrates background techniques learned on days 1 and 2.

The background was done using traditional watercolors and water, and I colored the Doodlie Do flower and leaves with copic markers.

I have lots more backgrounds done, and now I just need to finish cards with them.  Stay tuned! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!
