Watercolour Class

Watercolour Class 002Oops!  Sorry to all of you who have been checking back faithfully to see a sneak peak for the watercolouring class I had today.   HERE is finally a picture of one of the cards we made today.  Some fine artists we had here - very impressive colouring.  Thanks ladies for coming along!   This card was inspired by the wonderful Alisa Tilsner who gave a watercolouring tutorial at the Stampin' Up! Conference last month.  We learnt a few simple tips and tricks that has changed the level of my watercolouring.  Thanks so much Alisa!

Recipe : Stampset: Boatloads of Love.  Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Not Quite Navy, Watercolour Paper.  Ink: Black Staz On, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Grey, Not Quite Navy for colouring.  Accessories: 5/8" Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon, Retired SU DP.

 I have a question for you - "What does the average woman spend 3 1/2 hours every day doing?"  Post your guesses here - if you guess correctly, I'll post you one of each of the cards from today's class!  You need to be specific...  If more than one of you get it right, I'll randomly pick the winner from the correct answers.  I will draw the winner (if you can guess correctly...) on Wednesday at 9pm, and tell you the correct answer.

BTW - I have my first email winner (Well done to Megan Finer, who sent me an email after seeing my new email details on my blog), and am now half way towards having the 100th emailer.  Megan - I'll give you your treat on Wednesday.

Have a wonderful long weekend.

I love your watercoloring. In fact, watercolor is my favorite paint medium. I love the way we can achieve more than one shade with the same color just by adding water. TFS!!

Hi, great card. My guess is that the average woman spends 3 1/2 hours cooking and preparing meals every day.
