Day one -Watercolor Class

Wow!  A new watercolor class for card makers has started.  I loved the first one I took a year or two ago.  It was so inspiring - and this one is nothing short of AMAZING!  I knew quite a bit about working with watercolor as a medium and mixing and blending colors, but this is on a whole new level for me because so much of it is based on the use of what I would call Asian-inspired watercolor techniques that are based on using pure brush strokes to create imagery,  First thing I had to do was go out and get some more brushes.  

This exercise was about creating an ombré effect using a flat brush and blending/bleeding two colors together.  I used it to create this simple but dramatic card with a butterfly and a few sequins for accents.
