Friday Focus Watercoloring

Over on the Flourishes newsletter Julie is going to show you different ways to watercolor with different elements.
For my card I used ink from the lid in my ink pad. I kept this very simple so the focus is on the tree. I used three different ink pads and as you can see the camera picked them up very well, which doesn't make me happy. It blends and looks much better IRL. Darn camera picks stuff up when you don't want it to and not when you need it to. LOL Be sure to check out the newsletter and see the variety you can have with watercoloring! And check out the DT cards.

    On a side note I am doing some changes on my blog, so please be patient with me. I am so challenged with this stuff and I tend to learn the hard way. :0) Have a great day!

    This seems very cool, calm, and soothing to me, Stacy. I like how you accented with the black ribbon and brads, too. I always love your just-right style.

    This is so pretty Stacy...I love crisp whites against the green!

    Don't you hate when your camera does that to you? I sure do too!
