More Watercoloring: Day 3

OK, today's lesson over at Watercolor for Cardmakers, Intermediate techniques was about negative painting and lifting....and these are the looks that make me fascinated with watercoloring! Everyone should take this class just to see Dawn Woleslagle's "so Very Grateful (Leaves)" examples!  That is what I want to do when I go up! LOL!

By my third attempt I was at least a bit OK with my results; but by then my patience on waiting for the first paint to dry was pretty much gone...and I had much "bloom" overflow.  Really need to continue to work on my hard edges.  (but at least the only browns I got were intentional!) I tried the lifting on the second one where the wings overlapped; but thought 3 butterflies was too much for this size; I'll give that another go tomorrow.

The stamp is by MemoryBox, and the butterfly has some leaves as part of the image; I trued to lighten them, but forgot on the final one. The palest Archival ink I have is Dandelion, which was darker than it probably should be.

Thanks for stopping by and witnessing my transformation into a water-colorist...I can't wait to see what the next 3 days bring!
