Altenew Academy ~ Day 6

Here's my last card for day 6 of the Altenew Academy, Stunningly Simple Watercolors. Day 6 brought us Dropped In Color.

I discovered that I really love the color combination of using Tim Holtz Mustard Seed, Abandoned Coral and Orange Marmalade, so I went with those colors for dropping in my background. I think I had my watercolor paper too wet as it didn't come out quite like Lydia's but I still am happy with the results. I definitely want to try this technique again.
I used Altenew's Vintage Roses and Ombre Thanks to complete my card.

I'm so sad to see this class end, as I've learned so much, found new helpful tips and really enjoyed doing my homework. Lydia's video's were precise and easy to follow and I totally recommend taking some of her classes. Thanks so much Lydia for a fun week of learning and playing!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

Birgit, this is so fabulous. I love your colors. I still haven't finished Day 6 card, have the background but don't know what to do with it. I really might have to use yours for inspiration. Gorgeous.
