Clean and Simple Holiday Homework

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!!

I have been busy this week with after school activities, preparing for my daughter's homecoming from college (tomorrow) and taking the Clean and Simple Holiday 2018 online card class. 

I know, I know, there are a ton of videos on YouTube to see but the online card classes are SO MUCH FUN!! I love the forum and being able to learn new techniques that I would never even think to search for online. 

Anyhow, I am posting the homework that I did for Day 3 of the class. I haven't gotten to the homework for Day 1 or 2 yet because I have to do a bit of digging to find the right stamp sets and I didn't feel like it. 

Kristina Werner did a video for this class with a cool watercolor technique. I chose to make two trees-one in red and one in green.

As usual, watercolor and I do not always have a copacetic relationship, I had to cut my watercolor paper at the bottom when I placed it on the card front and so to make it an A2 sized card, I added a strip of glitter tape. 

These were SO FUN to make and I have it in my head to try to do this technique with a different shape.

On a different note, I also had to create two sympathy cards. It seems that is all I make these days!!

I did some experimenting with watercolor AGAIN on this but I did not use the correct ink. However, I refused to throw the panel away and made it into a sympathy card. The flowers are from WPlus9's Beautiful Boquet: Ranunculus stamp set and the sentiment is MFT's Deepest Sympathy stamp set.

I used Altenew Garden Treasures set to create this card, combined with my favorite PaperTrey Ink Words of Comfort set. 

Well, that is all for me today. I hope you all have a FABULOUS day!!
