Peaceful Petals Thank You

Ann Shach's February Lesson of the Month was another excellent teaching tool for this watercoloring newbie! I love her watercolor style and her teaching style! She is a retired teacher and you can tell she was a very prepared teacher. She gives you a full, printable tutorial as well as video links so you can see her making the cards she teaches every month. Plus you get a sample of each card. It couldn't be any easier and I am so thankful that I'm learning along the way. Ann has only a few spots left for her March Lesson of the Month, so if you are interested, stop by today!

You can tell that I'm a novice, as all of my petals are different, but I still keep improving. I love cutting out the blooms, since that means I can color outside the lines and not worry about it!

The blooms and stems were stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock versus water color paper, so they did curl up a bit due to getting wet. But I liked the effect--it made my card more 
3-D! What do you think? I'd love to read your comments.
