    Great video, I am a big afraid of watercolor but determined to learn. Thanks for explaining it like you did. Can I ask what is that big flowy type brush you are using. I have so many brushes but not one like that I don’t think. πŸ™‚

    I loved this card and I loved learning how to do the techniques to actually reproduce something similar. I often see cards done and wonder how the maker made it – knowing I couldn’t get it done. But now, I think I’ve learned enough to actually put something together. Thank you!
