Birthday cards

This first one is a watercolor collage. I followed an exercise from a watercolor for kids video that my girls and I watched, and it was fun. Drop colors down in blobs. let dry. Find the flowers within it and use a marker/black crayon to define them. I added another little group of flowers behind it (on the top), glued it to a nice cardstock and then painted the cardstock background.

I got these neat card sets from Oriental Trading Company that have a square window frame, you insert a picture, glue it in and then I embellished it with wc strips. Fun to do. bright and cheery.

Lovely! I like the way you did the first one. Something I have to try too.
