Follow your Dreams

Good Afternoon!  I have another card for you today from the June Technique Club on water colouring using the gorgeous Follow your Dreams bundle.

Follow your Dreams

Follow your Dreams Watercolour Pencil Wash by Leonie Schroder Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Australia

Creating this card in class was a lovely relaxing time with the ladies.  They also love that Dreamcatcher die set!

To create our Water Colour Pencil Wash background we used our Water Colour Pencils to colour direct onto the Water Colour Paper in patches.  We then used the Aqua Painter to paint the colours and blend a little.  It makes a really pretty background doesnt it?

Once the background piece was dry we attached the Dreamcatcher and ‘Dream’ word we cut from the Chase Your Dreams Thinlits Dies Once the Dreamcatcher was cut out we painted it with the clear Wink of Stella to make it all glimmery and pretty.

Tip: If you apply the Multipurpose Adhesive sheets to your cardstock before cutting the dies out it’s really easy to adhere these pieces to your card. Saves having bits of glue showing and getting it up to your elbows!

As I was photographing the card I thought that it needed a little something …

So I added some of the Share  What You Love Artisan Pearls and a regular Basic Pearl Jewel in the centre.  Just by adding these little pearls makes so much difference to the card.

Latte Technique Club 

We have lots of fun getting together each Wednesday and making a couple of cards.  The ladies who come each week have become good friends and we’d love for you to join us!

What is the Latte Technique Club? 

We do one base technique each month and cover different ways to use that technique each week.  The ladies love it as they are learning so much and learning different ways to use the craft supplies and tools.

For June Watercolouring was the ‘base technique’ and during the month we covered techniques like ..

  • Watercolour Wash
  • Watercolour Pencil Wash
  • Watercolouring Images
  • Reverse Watercolouring
  • Stained Glass

We will be covering Masks and Masking in August and will start on 8th August.  We are taking a break this month simply as I’m away for 3 Wednesdays for the Alaska Cruise Trip.

If you’d like to join us please message or email me to let me know so I can save a seat for you!   Each class is just $10 or free with an order on the day.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and see you latte ..
