Quick 'n' Easy Cards

Here are a couple of cards I did for a class I taught this morning. Nothing fancy but most of my students were beginners so you have to start somewhere. I was so busy preparing for my class while hubby worked nights that I was unable to get anything else done so you get to see these!
wclr heartfelt thanksI am not in love with my watercolouring job on this flower. The one I did during the class demo was MUCH better!! Oh well. This is done on watercolour paper with Stazon ink.

The next card I had fun making so simple, yet pretty and easy to make a whole bunch of them. That makes them a great gift idea. Cutting the paper to 2x4" (rather than the full width of 4 1/4") allows you to get way more bella monogrampieces per sheet of 12x12" paper, which is important if you really have a lot to make.

Enjoy, Rebecca

There is nothing wrong with the coloring that I can see! Your card is beautiful! I also love the second one. Red in cards is one of my favorite colors, and this one would make a stunning set of note cards! Great job! Best, Curt
