Two cards - Watercolors for Cardmakers Class

Hi!  I'm sharing 2 cards that I created for Online Card Classes - Watercolors of Cardmakers, Day 2.
Yes, I running SO behind...Day 2 was 5 days ago.  It really doesn't matter, we lifetime access to all of the video tutorials and PDFs.
Day 2 showed us other ways to create watercolor backgrounds.  I used 2 of the techniques on my cards.

Card 1 ~

This is my second try at this particular background technique.  As with most techniques, it takes a little practice.  At least, for me!  The hollyhock die cut is by Memory Box.

Card 2 ~

And...once again, my first attempt didn't go as planned.  BUT, after watching Debby Hughes video again, I realized I hadn't used enough water.  I'm very happy with this second attempt!  I'm ready to do it again!  The background stamp I used is one of my favorite's from Stampin' Up!...French Script.

Thanks for taking a look today.  I'll be back in a bit with my card for Day 5.  Yeah, I know, I'm jumping around out of the lessons order.  Ack...not enough stamping hours in my weekends!
