Water color classes and Stamp Along cards

Earlier this spring I took a few watercolor classes at the Senior Center. 
It was fun because I went with friends both times. 
It was supposed to be relaxing but I was more stressed than relaxed. 
The second time was a little less stressful than the first. 
I can imagine it is the same for you coming to the Stamp Along.
The first couple of times of doing anything new is an adjustment. 
We didn't have a choice of the subject matter. The picture was given to us and we traced it onto the watercolor paper. I did learn a lot about the blending of the colors and a few techniques to use with watercolor. I wish I could have gone to a few more of the classes but my schedule didn't allow for that. I would have enjoyed doing the one of the flower, I think. 

What do you think? Is there any improvement in the second one? LOL 
It was certainly more detailed than the first. Both of them took the entire class time to finish. 
Had there been more time, I would have used it. Maybe it is good that I had to quit when I did. 

I enjoy using the aqua painters on cards. That is all the watercolor I need for now. 
Do you like to use the aqua painters? 

If you choose to order on line before the July Stamp Along on the 11th please use the hostess code
Thank you so much!

Here are two of the cards that will be available on the 11th. 
Do you remember the vertical greetings that we used to have?
We have this set of topiaries and vertical greetings. 

This one uses a few punches and a masking technique.

Hope to see you on the 11th at the Library.
