Loose Watercolor Floral Cards

So, about 2-3 weeks ago I took a loose watercolor class at Skillshare and let me just say that I am hooked! I have shared these cards on my Instagram, but haven't share it here on my blog. 

This blue floral card was my 2nd watercolor drawing and the 1st that I made into a card. When I did this, I didn't start with any sketch. I just went with it. I was applying hubby's word of wisdom here, go big or go home. Hah!!



I did messed up a bit and that's the part that I ended up covering with the butterflies. Yep, butterflies to the rescue.

Next, is this loose bouquet. This time I used the chickadees from one of The Ton stamp set to help enhance the card and sentiment from Papertrey Ink. It's one of my favorite card!




When I started each panel, I literally started with no plan. Sometimes it's a good thing, sometime not. Hah... It becomes a problem when trying to figure out what sentiment fit with the image. I don't want to have too many empty space or have the sentiment  make it too crowded. For this reason, Papertrey Ink Choose Joy set becomes one of my favorite set to pair with my watercolor drawing.




I am still learning. By the way, if you're interested to sign up for Skillshare class, if you sign up through my link you can get the first 2 months free and I get 1 month free. They have all kind of classes, beyond art and crafts. And, if it's not for you, you can cancel. No commitment, no penalty. Just thought I share it here. You get 2 months free and I got extra 1 month free. Win, win right?

Well, that's all for now. Hope you enjoy these cards. Have a lovely weekend, peeps. <3
