I went to bed at least curious and less ambivalent than I had been about this class. This morning I had an online poker tournament to host and some housework to do before being able to attend class.
I am no longer ambivalent, I am IN TOTAL LOVE with this class. I love the videos, and even more I loved playing and making my cards. This was not HOMEWORK, this was so much fun. My cards are my first efforts, and one of them could definitely use some refinement, but they go into my binder and are for me.
I can promise however, that watercoloring will definitely be a go to for card making. My favorite of the three is the small thank you card with the oversized sentiment. I will definitely be making card sets similar to this for gifts!
And finally, here are my cards from today's lessons. I pretty much cased the designs, and used what I had on hand for stamps and dies.

I used an 8 pack of crayola watercolors for the first and third cards, distress inks for the middle card. Embossing powders were from Hero Arts, Versamark Ink. My blue ink on the first card is Hero Arts Neon Blue, the gold is Delicata. The thank you die is Hero Arts, the love die is Simon Says stamp. The heart brads are from Peebles. Embossing folder is from Sizzix and the twine I found at Target years ago.
Thanks for stopping by and getting through this long post.
