One layer masked rainbow

I'm on a bit of a rainbow kick at the moment - might be because I watched a heap of YouTube videos by Laura Bassen this morning! LOL! 
 I used some Lawn Fawn dies, masking paper, Distress Inks, a sentiment from Avery Elle "Handwritten notes", and some Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
I used the awesome sketch at CAS(e) this sketch for this card.  I will be sharing this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - the theme is Anything Goes.  I'll also be sharing it at the AEI*heart*U challenge, the theme of which is "friendship". And I'll be linking up at Just Add Ink #296....Just Add Nature

A couple of rainbows

A few week ago, I painted some watercolour cardstock with a rainbow of Distress Inks.  Today, I was completely lacking any cardmaking mojo, so I pulled out one of these pieces, and made a couple of cards:
I made this one first - I die cut one of the stitched cloud border dies from Lawn Fawn onto the watercoloured piece, as well as on white cardstock.  I adhered them together to the card front, and added a sentiment from Hero Arts "messages with flourish", and a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
 

 For the second card, I added a vellum window on the bottom half of the card, with the rainbow adhered to the inside of the card.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle "so happy".



I will be sharing one of these cards at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - the theme is Anything Goes.

Online Card class - day 3

Doing some Online Card Class homework - I need a LOT MORE PRACTICE!  (seriously, I debated myself for ages on whether to post this one or not.)



I will be sharing this card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - the theme is Anything Goes.

Online Card Class - Day 2, card 2

Here's my 2nd card for the latest Online Card Class:
I painted these cornflowers after seeing Yana Smakula's video in today's class. I just love her cardmaking style. She is seriously fabulous! Just sayin' :)

Online Card Class - Day 2, card 1

I didn't get a chance to do any homework for Day 1 of the latest Online Card Class, "Watercolor for Cardmakers: Intermediate Techniques", but I've made two cards for day 2. Here's my first card:
 I did watercolouring over a white embossed pattern (from Hero Arts), like Laura Bassen did in class. But instead of the circle pattern of watercolour that Laura did, I created an ombre colour scheme, like Kristina Werner did in class.
