Color Techniques (Watercolor)

Last week I attended a Color Techniques class at the Archiver's store in Franklin.  This class focused on watercolor techniques using Tombow dual brush pens, water and paintbrush.  I completed the coloring part during class time and added embellishment/assembled the cards last night at home.  The Archiver folks had already embossed the image on watercolor cardstock.....which was a good thing considering that the entire 2 1/2 hour class was spent on "coloring" the embossed image. 

I think the cards turned out cute; however, I have already decided that the watercolor technique is not for me.  The technique (especially for the embossed images below) is very time consuming.  I think I prefer making cards just by using my stamps, ink pads and embellishments. 

So without further are the finished cards!
