Watercolor Class Pre-Homework

Next week a new online card class starts.
It's a watercolor class.  
The instructors have posted some ideas to get us started.
Here is a card I made using an idea that was posted.

  I first made the hello from paper I colored with distress stains.
I then used watercolors to make the plaid pattern.
A real easy card.
I think it's missing something but what?

Thanks for visiting.

Easter Cards

Today I have a couple of Easter cards.

The first one is a swap card.  

The bunny is popped up.

This last card is one I made for a couple of friends.
It was real simple as I was running out of time to get them in the mail.

Thanks for visiting.

I'm a Winner!

Last week I was reading Tim Holtz blog post.  He said they had 11,000 views of his April tag but only 77 comments.  (I always try to make a comment.) He decided to do a surprise giveaway.  He posted 13 comments and those people were told to email Mario.  I usually don't read the comment because I never win.  This time I looked over the names and guess who was there?  ME!  I was so excited.  I sent Mario my address and last Thursday I received a box of goodies.  

In the box was a shaded lilac Distress Marker, barn door Distress Paint, 8 bingo numbers, the Dot Matrix Texture Fade, the Gridlock Texture Fad and the Trellis Frameworks die.  

I can't believe what a great surprise!

More Swap Cards

I have 3 weeks of cards I swap with my friend each week.

I don't know why the colors are off.  The card is more of a teal and the other paper really does match.

I like this one best.  My only problem was the round part was so small.  Again the pink is not a bright  in real life.

I really am not sure of this one.  I don't know if it's the paper or the sketch.
