Watercolor class

I've signed up for the watercolor class at Online card classes  and made time this weekend to get to know my watercolors. I bought a set of of  12 Winsor & Newton watercolors at Hobby Lobby (40% off!) and made a chart like so:
 This was very helpful because it was hard to tell how the colors would translate onto the page.  I also did a bit of experimenting mixing colors as well.  I completed the homework assignment and made two plaid backgrounds:
I'm trying to figure out how to use them on a card, but it was fun to play around and I washed more color over an embossed image here:
I'm glad I bought the watercolor set because the colors are so vibrant.  I can't wait for class to begin!

My next challenge was this Sunday's sketch at OWH - #222 provided by Donna .  I loved this sketch because it was fast to put together and made for interesting cards.  Here's my take, which I discovered later didn't follow her card exactly:
    Sentiment is by Papertrey Ink Celebrations.  The gold embossing didn't photograph well, but it's readable in real life.  

Well, on to another work week.  I hope I can fit in time to create and hope you can too.  Thanks for stopping by!
