Simply watercolor class (Day 1)

Hi everyone!

This week I am taking Kristina Werner’s Simply Watercolor online class (, and I decided to post the cards I make along the way to document my progress working with watercolors.

I have been looking for watercolor classes that I could take to learn more about this medium so when Kristina posted on her youtube channel that she will be offering one I jumped at the opportunity. Kristina is a genius working with watercolors and brush lettering! If you don’t believe me check out her youtube channel (K Werner Design).

Day 1: We are focusing on backgrounds and patterns

The objective of one of the lessons was to create a plaid pattern for a simple birthday card made completely from scratch.


I am not very happy with my plaid pattern, but hey it’s my first time creating a pattern from scratch.

After I finished creating the pattern, I couldn’t help myself and die cut the watercolor paper with a wonky stitch rectangle die.


Supplies used:

  1. 12-color watercolor set (Any set you have works!)
  2. Gansai Tambi Starry Colors (Amz)
  3. T ruler (Amz)
  4. Round #2 brush from the Benicci 15-pieces set (Amz)
  5. Simon Says Stamp WONKY RECTANGLES Wafer Dies  (SSS)

  6. Thin 3D foam squares (Amz)

That is all for now, but I stay tuned for day 2 of the simply watercolor class!
