OCC clean & simple 3 Homework Day 7

Another 3 wonderful videos today. I was inspired by them all, but I've started on the watercolouring cause I was in the mood after watching Jennifer Rasza's tutorial.

Here are 2 cards, using different methods.

In the first card, I traced the negative space of a Penny Black die with pencil and then used water colour paints. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. We have Bearded irises in our garden and I LOVE them! I found the shape of the leaves a bit tricky, so I need more practice there. 

In this card, I used a Kaisercraft stamp. I painted on to the stamp and then used a plain wet brush to fill in the image. Again, I need more practice, but I do find this type of card making quite relaxing!
Ps: I decided to mount this on green card so it is one layer!


  1. Gorgeous, Jenny! I especially love your Iris!

  2. Both beautiful. Love the soft shapely iris.

  3. Your cards are just wonderful... Especially love the bearded iris... Look fresh cut from the garden!

  4. Gorgeous cards, Jean! Truly artistic! Love your water-color and shading!

  5. These are gorgeous! Love that second one, especially.

  6. Absolutely beautiful Jean :)
