Well, I still have a week to create! Over at Stamp Nation they are having a special class on watercolor, not much new to us but fun to follow along! The instructor is using Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, which look really nice. I'm playing along using my Zig Clear Color brush markers. So these are my first cards following her directions. The pear and pineapple cards were doing a wash background. Then the leaf is direct to paper and blending with two colors.

Wonderful cards Nancy. I've been trying to venture into "coloring", I'm not good at it.

These are great. I like to use watercolors and colored pencils, but am really bad at the blending and shading - it's definitely harder than it looks.

They are all difficult. I congratulate those who can do it.

I'm drawn to those big floral stamps and your card is just beautiful! All of them are beautiful though.
