Creative Watercolor Media - AECP Level 2

How about this for a pretty card!  This is my card for the  Creative Watercolor Media Class I am taking for the Altenew Educator Certification Program.  I used my Altenew Crisp Ink Pads to water color this beautiful image and took advantage of the incredibly detailed die to create a card I am calling the Upright Easel Card.

I created a video to show you how I created it as part of the Save the Crafty YouTuber Video hop.The Save the Crafty YouTuber Video hop is a celebration of cardmaking video tutorials created by a group of talented crafters of all different styles and levels.
