Watercolor Online Card class

Here are DAY 1 cards for the Online Card Class "Watercolor"
I have been looking forward to this class,
I am NOT an artist, so I will wait to see if I like this technique,
so far, so good.

Day 1 showed three instructors giving videos showing water coloring with three different techniques. The first card was water colored, then  stencil was laid down and pressed into the colors to leave a slight impression.
The second card used distress ink onto a stamping block, spritzed with water and them placed in the center of the card..each color was overlapped and dried, a second stamping was applied to add depth to the color.
The third card was a heat embossed and then a resist water color.
Thanks for taking a look!
