I had trouble with the lighting on this third lesson when I photographed it. Turning the paper to the smoother side and trying this was a little easier. Now I know that watercolor paper does not work for me and I am trying some others, including canvas paper (didn't work), and heavy matte (didn't work) And now to Strathmore and La Tiente paper.
Since this class was a "project" class as well as a technique class, here's my Lesson 2 finished project! I used Spellbinders SCD-012 Pierced Rectangles on the Prismacolored Pencil graphic by Ppinky Doll, a Flourish Die from Cheery Lynn, (B 37--tiny fanciful flourish) and flowers from my stash from I am Roses.com. Inside stamp, (white on Rich Razzleberry SU) is "You are Amazingly Amazing." The flower that looks so yellow in the photograph is the same color as the watercolor paper.
